THE SOHO MUSIC SCHOOL
The Best Teachers and Studios in the heart of the West End…
THE SOHO MUSIC SCHOOL
Where better to learn to sing or play an instrument than in the very same studios where great artists such as David Bowie, Ringo Starr, Depeche Mode and Bjork have all recorded some of their greatest songs.
Our school is based in the heart of Soho, central London, the hub of the UK’s booming music scene. Located in the legendary Berwick Street Studios, our tutors work in three professional studio facilities.
Our main purpose is to develop music abilities in a fun and creative environment. We cater to both beginners and advanced students.

Senior Singing & Piano Tutor

Music Mentor & Guitar Tutor
“With Ben, I was able to increase my speed and accuracy far more significantly than I had with previous tutors. He also helped me to develop the composition of my own solos – he recognised my influences but made sure my music was ‘me’. A great teacher.”
“Before I met Ben, I had picked up a guitar many times but made no real progress. Ben helped me to make sense of guitar playing in ways that were fun, exciting and to my own musical tastes, always encouraging me and making me want to push my playing further. Thanks to Ben’s lessons, I can now write and play music that I love”
‘Ben is an amazing teacher. His lessons are always really fun, and he uses the songs I’m passionate about as a tool to inspire me to keep learning. He has a talent for choosing the right songs for my ability and using them as a mechanic to build my skills. It’s a far-cry from my old piano lessons, where I was forced to learn chords by rote! Now I can play my favourite tunes AND am pleased with my ability as a guitarist in general’.
‘Ben undoubtedly improved my playing and general musicality. His approach was not just to focus on scales and music theory but also on how to fit a riff or solo to the music. He also helped me with how to set-up a guitar and select the correct effects for a track. Although I joined Ben as an intermediate level player, I would also recommend him for beginners too, as he has a very patient air. Ben has knowledge of a number of rock genres and is very flexible on timetabling’.
‘From the very first lesson, Ben put me at ease, reassuring me that everyone has to start somewhere when learning an instrument! He quickly gained an understanding of the music I like and went to great lengths to learn some of my favorite songs in order to teach me how to play them. Ben was incredibly patient and encouraging despite my tone-deafness and the poor quality of my first guitar, and was great at explaining things, always with tips and ideas to help me learn. As well as this, Ben is a genuinely lovely guy who seems to get on with everyone and always managed to make lessons fun and interesting. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn guitar’.
