In addition to tuition and group sessions, we also organise a number of performance opportunities which students can be involved in, such as charity concerts and local events. Please speak to your teacher about getting involved!

Instrument Hire

At SAMA, we understand that buying a musical instrument is a major investment and can often be an obstacle on the road to starting music lessons. We offer an affordable instrument hire scheme, which enables students to try out their chosen instrument for a term or two before making a decision to buy. More details are on our Instrument Hire page.
