the musical box

Hi there,

Thanks for checking out The Musical Box - Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire's favourite rock school where you can get drum lessons, guitar lessons, bass guitar lessons, piano / keyboard lessons , ukelele lessons and vocal lessons.

At TMB we provide one to one lessons in all the contemporary instruments and encourage students to listen, play and have great fun. We have entered students into over 75 graded exams and so far have a 100% pass rate, the latest of which was a Rockschool Grade 8 in Guitar passed with Distinction. The teachers at The Musical Box are all dedicated Musicians with years of live and teaching experience. They are continually performing, teaching and learning from each other with the sole aim of passing on musical skills to students who also share that passion.

Please contact us at the Atherstone-on-Stour (AOS) or Fritwell Studios if you would like to discuss lessons or other activities.           


We believe that regardless of age or of whether you're learning drums, guitar, bass, uke, keyboards or vocals, lessons should be fun. If you are enjoying yourself, you will learn better, so we don't do dry boring lessons, no - we think that with a good mix of learning songs and technique we'll get you playing better, quicker and with a wicked smile on your face!


I hope to see you soon!
