Training and support

Do you want to learn more about teaching music? Are you an instrumental tutor or school teacher?

We like our teachers to also be prepared to learn themselves, which is why we provide regular, ongoing training opportunities for the whole team. You will be able to access programmes and opportunities relevant to your needs.

We offer a variety of professional development courses to enhance tutor knowledge. These include regular training events, inset days and conferences. Visit the Surrey Music Hub for information on Surrey tutors, including training, courses and conferences.
