Music Lessons

'The Conservatoire for Where You Are'

Since it's 1980's launch, the Northern Music Academy has provided a music education that does more than simply teach music. NMA has toured Europe and performed at prestigious UK venues, while our students have enjoyed successful musical careers, writing, recording, singing and producing, literally worldwide. With lessons both in person and online, we can teach anyone, anywhere. Now, you could be next.

With several decades experience at the helm, founders Darrell and Eileen Priestley have dealt with plenty of change. So when the pandemic hit in 2020, we were quick to adapt, seamlessly offering online lessons. NMA now offers access to a first rate music education via highly qualified teachers in surroundings as safe as they are elegant. With such attention to detail, ranging from secure entry to screens, we call this 'Safer Sound'.

All this, plus music lessons proven effective well into our fourth decade, yet nma remains such brilliant value, others wonder just how we do it!

Despite 34 years of success, nma is never blasé - you deserve better than that.

Whether beginner or advanced, in studio or online, nma remains 'the Conservatoire for Where You Are'. See below for just some of our lesson options, or contact us now.
