  • Professional Musicians Who Love Teaching Music

    Study with professional recording and performing musicians in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Learn the mechanics of your instrument and how to really understand what you are playing

  • Approach

    The Adrian Jones Music School's approach to music education focuses on the inner workings of music, songwriting and improvising as soon as a student starts playing. We feel that learning an instrument should be the tool that helps to develop musicality, and our goal in teaching is to help students become intelligent musicians, not just instrumentalists or singers. This approach has proved to be very effective and contributed to many students becoming professional performers, recording artists and teachers.

     

    For those students interested, there are several "real life" performance opportunities with a full professional band each year either in a theatre, restaurant or festival setting.
