Frequently Asked Questions

Teachers charge their own rates with Teach Tutti. This means lesson pricing can vary significantly. 30 minute lessons typically start from £15 and hourly lessons begin from £35.
We provide lessons on a wide range of instruments, including piano and singing. For more information, see our list of instruments taught.

All lessons are paid using the direct debit provider GoCardless.

If you decide to continue after your taster lesson, all future payments are made in four lesson block instalments.

Payment for each lesson block will be withdrawn once the previous block has been completed. Lessons are not weekly and you will not lose lessons if you are unavailable, such as when on holiday.

Please fill in the search form for a list of suitable teachers living nearby. You can then book a discounted first lesson with your preferred teacher. A full refund is guaranteed if you are unhappy for any reason.

Assuming you are happy with your taster lesson, you can then arrange lessons directly with your teacher.

Your teacher will suggest appropriate sheet music after assessing your ability during the first lesson.

Yes. We extensively vet our tutors and keep their qualifications and DBS check on record. We also receive assurances of the teacher’s safety from references provided by their students before registration.

We give lessons across Greater London and all its boroughs.

If your teacher is unable to make a lesson, such as for ill health, it will be rearranged with the student at a later date that is convenient.

This is dependant on the teacher’s capability to teach from their home. If you wish to do so, please contact Teach Tutti before booking your taster lesson and we will find a suitable teacher.

This is dependant on your location and the instrument you want to learn. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this with a representative of Teach Tutti.
We prepare students for ABRSM and Trinity examinations. The tutor will prepare the student for each exam, which the student can put themselves in for online. Teach Tutti can provide accompaniment where needed.
In normal circumstances, 5 years old is the youngest age you can begin learning an instrument from, considering the concentration required. There are exceptions, which we would judge after the taster lesson and when talking to the child’s parents.

There is no age beyond which you are too old to learn an instrument: we are strong advocates to the belief that it is never too late to learn. If you would like to learn music, we are happy to teach you.

Yes. If you want to arrange a consultation lesson as a present, please contact us for more details.
If you need to cancel or change a lesson it is very important that you notify your tutor directly and give at least 24 hours notice. If the teacher doesn’t receive this notice period, the music lesson will still be deducted from your block.
Yes. Many of our students have other members of their family learning alongside them. You can sign up multiple students at your consultation lesson or at any point during your involvement with Teach Tutti. You can also split the lesson length paid for between two students, such as a 60 minute music lesson shared by a parent and child.
You can end lessons at any time. We ask that you give two lessons notice before doing so. You will not receive a refund for any remaining lessons in your prepaid lesson block.
This is entirely dependant on your availability and the availability of your teacher. You can book the date of the first lesson using the teacher’s calendar. After this, you can then arrange future lessons directly with your teacher.
