DMS is an independent music services offering a wide range of musical activities including preschool music, instrumental tuition and music workshops. 

We recognise that young children can develop many skills by being exposed to music. Children as young as 8 months are encouraged to explore music through the carefully structured Humpty Dumpty Music Classes. All classes are tailored to their unique students and many children move onto instrumental tuition when they start school.

A high standard of music tuition is delivered to students of all ages and abilities. Students are encouraged to develop a variety of techniques including musicianship skills and music theory alongside their practical tuition.

To achieve this, most lessons are arranged at a regular day and time each week. The best arrangement for students is a one-to-one 20 to 30 minute weekly lesson. Lessons are given after school or at the weekend either at my practice or by arrangement at the student's home. Some lessons are given during the school day at local schools. Lessons are booked per term and paid for in advance.

Lessons are planned according to individual needs and students are encouraged to work at their own pace. Many students are happy to play solely for personal pleasure; examinations are by no means compulsory. Students can be prepared for practical and theory exams up to and including Grade 8.
