Online Courses and Lessons

We are pleased  to offer online and distance learning options, including Udemy approved courses and Skype lessons.

Skype Lessons

Learn singing or songwriting or receive music business mentoring from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a secure and stable broadband connection and Skype. We recommend using a tablet or computer as a phone screen is a little fiddly to operate. Lessons take the same format as in person lessons and handouts, videos etc. are sent as attachments via Skype so you have all the same materials as students who attend the Bangor studio.

Skype lessons cost £12.50 per half hour or £25 per hour and are paid for via PayPal or direct debit.

You can book four half hour lessons or two hour long lessons using the button below.

For more information please feel free to send us a message.
