SCALES MUSIC IS A HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL AND WELL ESTABLISHED PRIVATE MUSIC SCHOOL PROVIDING INDIVIDUAL TUITION IN PIANO, SINGING, GUITAR AND THEORY FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS ACROSS SOUTH, WEST AND CENTRAL LONDON.

Here's what people have to say about us and our teachers

  • “One of the best things I have ever done is arranging for my children to have singing lessons with Antoinette. Antoinette is an inspirational teacher and the confidence and enjoyment they have from their singing has helped them achieve their goals both musically and across all areas of their lives. ”

  • "Audrey is an absolute gem!  She is a wonderfully encouraging teacher who pitches her lessons perfectly to ensure the girls make steady progress but at the same time enjoy playing music.  Audrey is very thorough and professional, she finds pieces she knows will appeal to their personal tastes, sets realistic goals and homework - the lessons flow and my daughters very much look forward to their time with her. She is extremely reliable, is passionate about what she does and makes each lesson fun - she has a firm but very friendly approach, my girls warmed to her immediately.  We have also attended two of the lovely 'Scales Concerts' where the children are given the wonderfully valuable opportunity to perform - both very enjoyable experiences and lovely to see the children growing in confidence and playing their pieces for an audience.  We would highly recommend Audrey and Scales Music.  ”

  • “Joe has taught our son for nearly four years now. Whilst our son has certainly learnt to play the piano well and achieved several Grades with Joe's excellent teaching, what is  most important is that he has helped him to enjoy playing the piano! Joe chooses music our son enjoys and makes the lessons fun. He is a very patient and sensitive teacher. Our son can be very shy and we really feel Joe has helped him gain confidence in himself that is shown outside of the piano lessons. Joe is also a lovely person we look forward to seeing each weekend. ”

  • “We are moving back to the United States after the Summer Term.  Dawn has been fantastic.   In fact, we would like to box Dawn up and take her with us if she would go.  The girls ADORE her and their progress on the piano is amazing.  Losing her might be the saddest part of us moving!!!  ”

  • “We really enjoy working with Scales Music. Antoinette is a pleasure to deal with, and is unbelievably flexible with the changing availability of our children. We have used both Joe and Francesca, both of whom have built up a wonderful rapport with our children. And as a result, they look forward to their lessons (and even practise too!), which is the most important thing of all.”

  • “My son Sam has had weekly piano lessons with Scales Music since he was five years old, starting out with Antoinette herself and then studying with two wonderful Scales Music teachers, Will and Joe. He is seventeen now and is working on his Diploma, having gained a distinction for his grade 8 piano exam, and won the Barnes Young Musician of the Year competition.  He is studying music for A levels and hopes to study it further at Cambridge University.  Sam would not have developed the skills and love he has for music without the nurturing, encouragement and inspiration he has received from Antoinette and her dedicated teachers. ”

  • “Scales Music has been providing music teachers in various capacities for my children for the past 7 years; during that time I have not experienced a single occasion when I felt I was given anything less than complete support from Antoinette and her team of wonderful teachers. My now eleven year old daughter is studying piano, cello, music theory and singing and I am sure will have a life-long love of music due in no small part to Scales Music. ”

  • “Antoinette is a very gifted and intelligent music teacher. She has an extensive knowledge of the repertoire and knows exactly how to improve her students’ technique. More importantly, Antoinette quickly developed an honest and mutually respectful rapport with our daughter which has enabled them to explore new pieces together in order to work on them in a very mature, personal and supportive way and very successfully too. Our daughter’s singing has improved beyond all recognition and Antoinette has given her great confidence in her ability. Our daughter recently passed her ABRSM Grade 8 exam with a high distinction score of 144/150 and won the Richmond Festival Solo Voice performance as well as her School Festival Music Voice Prize and a place at Royal College of Music Junior Department which she now attends weekly. Antoinette is also a very organised teacher who has a very clearly set out timetable that she communicates well in advance. She never cancels her lessons and always runs on time. Antoinette is always in a good mood, always courteous and very reliable. She is the best teacher one could ever hope for.”

  • “My daughter has been having piano lessons with Eugenie for nearly 3 years now. With absolute sincerity and whole hearted honesty, I simply cannot praise Eugenie enough, she simply is an incredible teacher. Week in, week out, she turns up for the lesson with a happy disposition, always smiling and always calm and relaxed. Her manner is always full of praise and encouragement, her ability to bring my daughter back into focus when her mind wanders is remarkable. Eugenie's approach to teaching is so refreshing, she carefully considers the child as an individual and manages to progress their ability by encouraging them to keep going when things get a little tricky, always with her expert hands at the ready to play alongside so that the child feels supported.  I cannot recommend Eugenie as a teacher more highly, she is a breath of fresh air as well as being a piano teacher of an exceptional standard. ”

  • “Alessandro has been teaching our children music for the past 6 months and we have been delighted with their progress. He has really tuned into the types of music they like, and has found ways to incorporate simplified versions of modern songs into their sessions which has really caught their interest and has hugely increased their enjoyment.  In the words of our 6 year old “Alessandro is a good teacher because he does cool stuff”.  By approaching things from a different perspective Alessandro has really made music come alive for both of them and by using games to explain some aspects of music theory he has covered a lot of basics without them realising it. ”

  • “Antoinette and I have been working together for almost 7 years now and I wouldn’t be without her. She is hugely supportive and her style of teaching through well-chosen repertoire has kept me engaged and improving throughout - having had a negative experience with a singing tutor at drama school I had lost a lot of confidence but with Antoinette’s help I’m now working on Diploma level classical repertoire and singing is once again a hugely joyful and rewarding part of my life. As an actor I have a very changeable schedule, and she is understanding of my need for flexibility and for striking a balance between singing as a professional tool and as a hobby for my own pleasure. She is simply brilliant and I can’t recommend her enough.”
