Thames Valley Music School Programs

At Thames Valley Music School, our programs are created to provide you with the environment and instruction necessary for artistic growth. We offer private lessons in piano, string and wind instruments, percussion and voice, as well as ensembles for all ages and abilities.

Private Lessons

Have you thought about picking up an instrument for the first time? Do your children seem musically inclined, but need an outlet to explore their talents? If music is still in your blood or your kids have the desire to learn an instrument, then private lessons are the perfect opportunity to grow and develop your skills. Private lessons run continuously from September – June and students can enroll at any time.
