Instrumental, vocal, composition, and theory teaching is available for both adults and children who live in London, and live centrally, that is, in Zones 1-3. It is very unusual that our teachers will be able to travel beyond Zone 3. Please note that it is not possible for lessons to be conducted at the Royal College of Music itself.

When we receive your application we will try and match you to an RCM current student or graduate teacher appropriate for your needs and arrange your first lesson. This should usually take no longer than 2 weeks.
There is an application fee for the service, which is £48 (including V.A.T.). If you would like to engage a second teacher you will be liable to pay another application fee of £24 (including VAT). If three separate teachers are required the Application Fee will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
