Information about MusicStation.
MusicStation is the biggest private contemporary music school in the Southeast, currently with 500+ students per week – and has taught over 65,000 lessons since opening the Tonbridge centre in 2013.
MusicStation specialises in rock and pop music. Their 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. They are some of the best musicians around having played with top artists including Robert Plant, Matt Berry, The Beautiful South and David Arnold (Bond theme composer) at venues across Europe and the USA including The Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Arena, Ronnies Scott’s and Koko in Camden.
The weekly lessons are 30 minutes and taught in small groups, organised by age and ability level. MusicStation has pioneered new group teaching methods using the latest digital instruments and by utilising their own online syllabus. There’s no waiting in turn to play as each student will be playing out loud with their own instrument.
They also specialise in teaching the Trinity Rock & Pop exam syllabus that is currently taking the musical education world by storm. MusicStation teachers were the lead consultants for this groundbreaking development in graded musical exams.
