Music Lessons

'Our success is measured by your achievement!'

Since 1989, the Northern Music Academy has served the aspiring music community, training tomorrow's musicians today. We don't just teach music,
we help students to sparkle and shine.

Inspiring teachers enjoy the freedom to develop a teaching practice optimised for both their students and themselves, within the auspices of a dedicated team. We welcome enthusiastic music teachers, and help them build a flourishing career.

Through their dedication, whole generations of our students now know the joy of music in their lives. Some have created memorable performances
around the UK and Europe, while others have developed a musical career.

With several decades experience at the helm, founders Darrell and Eileen Priestley share an absolute commitment to provide a wonderful learning experience, making music lessons endlessly rewarding for both student and teacher.

Despite 35 years of success, we can never rest on our laurels. Music has the power to fill your heart with joy. It is our privilege to share that joy with you.

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