MuzoAkademy is a community music project and a programme of the 7C's Foundation. People of all ages, abilities and musical styles come together to enjoy creating original music. At the same time they are developing skills that help them in all areas of life.
CAN I HAVE A GO TO SEE IF I ENJOY IT?
Yes absolutely! You can start with a free trial so you can see just how much fun it is. Either join an existing band, bring friends along and form your own band or even start a band with your family. Either way your first session is free! If you like it, you can be become a member.
DO YOU HAVE TO BE A CERTAIN AGE TO TAKE PART?
No not at all. Our youngest student was just 3 years old and our eldest is currently 89. It's never too late or too early to begin playing an instrument! For our youngest students our criteria for taking part is based on focus and we usually run 30 minute sessions.
WHEN DO YOUR SESSIONS RUN FROM?
We are open 7 days a week and 362 days a year. Our sessions run from 10am-8pm Monday to Friday and 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
DO YOU TEACH INSTRUMENTS AS WELL AS BAND SESSIONS?
Yes we do! Our music mentors are able to teach to a very high standard on most contemporary instruments including drums, guitar, bass and piano. We also have some students learning banjo and ukulele. We accommodate all abilities and tailor the lessons to suit the individuals needs, interests and requirements. We can also teach grades if the student wants.
HOW DO I TAKE PART?
We offer two ways that a person can take part; a loyalty member and non member. A non member pays the going rate which is concurrent to other music tuition and that's £40 p/h for an individual lesson and £25 p/h for a band session.
WHAT IS LOYALTY MEMBERSHIP?
The loyalty members pay an annual membership which comes with a whole range of perks. Loyalty membership is £65 a month and with this the student is entitled to a minimum of 52 free band sessions a year.
WHAT PERKS COME WITH LOYALTY MEMBERSHIP?
With loyalty membership, one-to-one lessons are £10 p/h, which is paid if and when you turn up for the lesson. Instrument hire is available from £2.50 a week. Loyalty members can also join several bands which means they could be having up to 7 session sessions a week at no extra cost.
AM I COMMITTED WITH LOYALTY MEMBERSHIP?
Loyalty membership is non committal and you can leave anytime you like. There is no penalty for leaving early although we do ask for one month's notice.
