We offer professional lessons at competitive prices with exceptional value for money. Discounts are available for students (including those in post-16 education) and for Block Payments. Lower rates are available to pupils in Penarth, Barry and the Vale reflecting the regional market trends. Plus, we frequently run special offers with substantial discounts, so it's always worth contacting us to get a quote. We also offer bespoke packages for a one-off all inclusive payment at a negotiable price rather than charging at an hourly rate. We're not the cheapest in town for sure, and you won't find us on any daily discount sites, but please be aware that buying cheap often means that you buy twice.
