our story

Oxfordshire Music School was founded in early 2022 by Tom and Emma, with the intention of delivering high-quality music lessons across the county, and introducing more and more people to musical instruments.

 

Since starting out with a handful of students in the back room of a pub in Abingdon, Oxfordshire Music School has grown to over 150 students across Didcot, Abingdon, Wantage and Wallingford!

 

Our students have gone from strength to strength, developing their skills on their chosen instrument as well as personal skills such as confidence and teamwork. Many students have joined in with our Live Events at various local festivals and venues. These events give students something to work towards as well as cementing a love for performing. One of our students has even gone on to jam with Ed Sheeran!

 

At the start of 2023 we introduced drum lessons to our roster, with lots of new talent signing up, so many in fact, that we’ve had to hire another tutor!

 

Looking to the future, Oxfordshire Music School plan to offer more exciting lessons to our students, and help them develop into the next generation of artists! We’ll be hosting three huge performance events (Christmas, Easter and Summer) as well as appearing at lots of local festivals and events, so there will be lots of opportunities for our students to improve hone their skills!

 

We could talk all day, but its what our students think that matters, here’s some words from our fantastic students!

If you’d like to join our growing community, please select a location below and browse our courses. If you can’t find a suitable class, please drop us an email, we’d be happy to help!

"My daughter has loved her guitar lessons, especially the enthusiastic, positive comments on how well she did in her lesson.

The lessons are just 30 minute bursts and the unique teaching approach allows kids to play music from the 2nd/3rd lesson which really helps to keep kids motivated."

Jo K

"Tom is an inspirational teacher who makes lessons enjoyable and motivating for his students. He's really passionate about communicating his love of music and songwriting to the next generation of musicians and my daughter always looks forward to her guitar lessons."

Jackie L

“My son thoroughly enjoys his weekly guitar lessons with Tom. The lessons are fun, engaging and Tom always manages to accommodate my sons song requests!”

Geoff O

“As a senior, beginner-intermediate, player I have found my lessons with Tom very valuable.  He has helped sort out some issues, improved my confidence and given me the building blocks to help me take my guitar journey forward to the next stage.”

Mark D

"Excellent experience in a friendly atmosphere, this method of learning is much more interactive where you can ask questions that an app won't answer. This course demonstrated how to break down a song into easily to learn segments and showed how to learn your favourite songs in an achievable way."
