Learn the language of music.

Music is more than just notation on a page. It’s a feeling, a story and a form of communitcation.

With a background in early childhood, Gumnut Music works with its young students using playbased learning to help them uncover and harness the emotion of music. We’re here to teach the joy of music, not just the academics of it.

Older students also benefit greatly from a fun and relaxed approach to learning. The more a child is laughing and engaged during their lessons, the more learning they will retain.

Whether you are looking to learn for leisure or to reach an AMAB grade, we can help you!

Gumnut Music Studio

In 2020 we welcome students to our brand new, purpose built studio featuring state of the art equipment and insrutments. The space has been designed with imaginative, child-lead learning at it’s heart. Students who study in the studio will be exposed to a wealth of resources and instrumetns that enable and enhance learning.

We understand how busy family life is. Where possible we schedule siblings and familes together to make life easier for everyone! We also offer parents and guardians a dedicated working space with wifi access for use while their little one’s are learning.

 

We focus on the whole student

Our students benefit greatly from a fun and relaxed approach to learning. We focus on providing an environment where children can explore not only their instrument but also their individuality. We use a diverse range of techniques and tools to empower students, leaving them with a sound foundation in musical language.
