Lessons with Heron Music Tuition


We’d love to welcome you on board for piano, guitar, bass, ukulele or music theory lessons. We teach from our home in Belper, Derbyshire or online. We welcome students of all ages and levels of experience and can customise lesson length and frequency to suit you.


Learning with Ed & Elin

We are experienced and patient teachers and have spent many years performing in a variety of settings. We do everything we can to make your lessons fun and rewarding no matter what stage you are at and for new or nervous learners, we keep an especially relaxed and encouraging atmosphere. 

Children are welcome from about seven, though if your child is extra keen we may take them on a bit earlier. It is NEVER too late to start learning, with some of our students joining us in their eighties. 

If you want to take exams, we can help you prepare, though they aren’t compulsory. We also help musicians who are looking to perform or move into further and higher education in music or the arts. 

If you or your child have additional or special needs, please get in touch. We have taught people from all sorts of backgrounds and do everything we can to widen participation in music.

Find out more about us on the About Us page.


Lessons & Resources

We have loads of resources including music from every style and period you could possibly want to learn! All students are given access to our Practice Space app to help make practising fun and easy, but we also have reward charts and certificates to keep you or your child motivated.

While we love teaching people in person, we are well set up for online lessons too. You can choose either option or have a hybrid if you prefer. We are happy to switch to an online lesson at short notice if you can’t make it in person.

Buying an instrument and taking care of it can be a challenge so we are always available to give advice and practical support if you need it. 


Booking & Payment

Lessons are usually weekly or fortnightly in a regular time slot. We have lots of different payment options including monthly standing orders and pay-as-you-go options. Our fees are competitive and we review them each year against the Musicians’ Union suggested rates of pay for music teachers. 

Check out the Lessons FAQ for detailed information about learning with us, including our current fees.
