SHADES HAS BEEN THE HEART OF MUSIC IN MOSELEY FOR 12 YEARS.
We offer affordable prices all year long; learning an instrument shouldn’t break the bank and music lessons should be affordable for all.
We have various special offers available all year round for our pupils. Recommend a friend and get a free lesson or pay for 3 and get 1 free!
All of our instrumental teachers have at least 5 years teaching experience and LOVE teaching. Being a great musician doesn’t mean you can inspire and enthuse a student to learn their scales , but being a great teacher does!
For all the instruments we teach, from Drums to Singing and Saxophone to Guitar, every teacher has a monthly assessment and we look at ways that we can constantly improve and give our students the most possible value!
We develop a tailored plan with each student dependent on what they want to achieve, specialising on which ever genre they’re interested in.
From Classical Violin to our new song writing courses, there are specialist tutors on hand to deal with any questions you may have.
Located in central Moseley, with plenty of parking and some of the cities best coffee shops a short walk away the music school is great for either dropping off children or staying and waiting for them.
We’re also located just by the number 1, 35 and 50 bus stops.
We have a waiting room where parents/students can relax on our sofas and chairs while using our free wifi or catching up on some work.
We think it’s great to have our students taking regular graded exams (entirely optional). These differ depending on the instrument and genre. For Classical students we use either ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall, however for contemporary music we usually suggest Rock School.
These all count to be GCSEs at the lower end and A-level and UCAS points in the upper grades.
We were recently given this image of the shop, amazing how little things have changed in 70 Years!
Servicing Moseley, Kings Heath and Edgbaston, Shades provides music lessons to over 200 students a week, in a warm, friendly and productive environment! We’ve helped over 800 pupils pass their exams at our shop in Moseley, Birmingham.
