Here at Guy Bathgate Music Tuition, it is our philosophy that nobody should have to go without a music education, for that reason, we have introduced a special scholarship for any prospective student who isn't in the position to pay for lessons. This consists of a simple application form which if accepted, will then lead the student onto a waiting list to receive up to 12 lessons absolutely free, to give them a chance to give music a go! So what are you waiting for? Learning can be for you too! Simply send an email to saying you want to sign up and we will send you the sign up form no questions asked!
