MusicStation, conveniently situated near the castle in Tonbridge town centre, is a state-of-the art facility with an air-conditioned soundproofed studio, pleasant and modern teaching rooms containing the latest Roland digital pianos, V- Drums and guitar amps. Large plasma screens, iMacs and iPads, CCTV in every room, and a comfortable reception/ waiting area that doubles as a studio control room.
We specialise in rock and pop music. Our friendly and experienced tutors are all successful working musicians, trained to structure the teaching of popular music from beginner to advanced, bringing both valuable industry knowledge and innovative teaching methods into every session.
We offer vocal and instrumental lessons (guitar, bass, keyboards/ piano, drums) mainly in small groups
or sometimes individual (if a group can’t be found), optional grade exams, band workshops, recording facilities, and tuition in music theory, songwriting and music technology.
One of the joys of learning and playing popular music is that creativity is just as important as technique – this also includes teaching improvisation and composition, often missing from classical music education. We think that these areas of self-expression are challenging, important and healthy for children and adults to experience. We study past masters including The Beatles, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, to modern artists including Adele, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and Beyonce, to learn the many different techniques they use in making music.
Your relationship to music is unique, it’s yours and no one else’s. We believe that everyone has potential to make music, no one is a “no-hoper” as everyone can sing or play something. As long as you enjoy making/ playing music you have succeeded. The goal is not to necessarily be the best in the world (unless you really want to be), it is to simply get to know music on a deeper level and have fun doing it.
We will show you the theory you need to understand how music works and we teach musical notation to all of those who want to learn it.
We specialise in teaching Trinity Rock & Pop exams (guitar, bass, drums, keys, vocals) and we are a Trinity Rock & Pop exam centre.
You might enjoy the beautiful sound of an acoustic guitar, or Jimi Hendrix’s screaming feedback. You might be a compulsive tapper that needs to play the drums. Maybe you want to sing like Amy Winehouse, or play piano like Jools Holland? Perhaps you really like making music on an iPad and recording your own songs, or why not form your own band? We often put on local concerts for our students – playing in a band is a memorable experience especially if it’s something you’ve never done before, it’s on many people’s bucket list!
You can do all of that and more at MusicStation. Virtually everyone loves music, so we think that everyone should have the chance to play an instrument or sing. That’s why we offer a free trial lesson on any instrument! We are the biggest private music school in the Southeast and currently have 500+ students per week and have taught over 70,000 lessons since our opening in September 2013 – and we are still growing fast, with new students and groups starting every week. We also provide music services for many local schools.
