Progress Reception

Our Approach

From our fantastic, newly renovated studio complex in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, we offer professional music tuitions in Guitar, Drum kit, Bass, Piano/Keyboard, Recording Studio techniques and Vocals... along with Workshops, Seminars and Clinics by some of today's top performers and industry professionals.

Our centrally located studio complex hosts a full band/Seminar/Lecture studio, a full production recording studio and nine fully equipped teaching studios. So come along and relax in our lounge area with refreshments and free Wi-FI and prepare for your next step to stardom!

Our Tutors

With some of the country's best musicians teaching for us, we guarantee you'll be playing along with your favourite songs, forming your own bands or passing your grades in no time. You can choose to study towards exam grades (We are Birmingham's only Accredited Trinity Exam Centre) or just improve on certain aspects.  ALL lessons are 100% tailored to your aspirations, music preference and learning style.
