Free Trial Lessons (FTL) are open to anyone (providing they are above the minimum age) so it really is NEVER too late to learn. All of our Stockport keyboard teachers have adult classes and in some cases operate mixed age classes so we really do have something for everyone.

Please note that free trial keyboard lessons at Stockport take place when there are enough students to fill a group, this may mean your details being kept on a waiting list until the next available FTL. Some of our music schools only offer lessons during term-time, where this is the case FTLs are held in term-time.
