Being a 'mature' student I was worried about taking up the challenge of learning an instrument but Progress Music Academy make me feel very comfortable and make me feel at ease, taking time to teach me, very patient, give great advice and set me challenges in-between lessons. I would highly recommend PMA, polite staff, great location with great transport links - Thank you Gary and Andrew 👍

I have really enjoyed my time at Progress Music Academy - I have been having singing lessons with Alexandra for a few months now and I am noticing improvements in my technique every time I go. She has been a fantastic tutor with so much knowledge and so much enthusiasm for teaching and her students. The PMA team are fantastic, organised, and welcoming each time I come - I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
