1 to 1 Tuition

Sessions run during term time

We have a limited number of places on offer for one to one tuition, free of charge to young people facing barriers.

We understand that a huge part of a young person’s musical journey is likely to involve learning an instrument. We currently offer tuition to young people up to the age of 18 or 25 for those who identify as disabled, or have a support plan in place for special educational needs.

We can offer tuition in Stockton, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, Hartlepool or online.

Musinc have a team of freelance music tutors who are set up and ready to deliver tuition. Our tutors cover piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums, vocals, ukulele, violin, cello, music technology and production and music theory.

Whether you have previously engaged with Musinc activities, or whether you are a new student we are happy to help.

Terms and Conditions

MUSINC provides access to high quality music making for young people in the Tees Valley.

We know that young people can bring about positive change in their lives and the lives of those around them by getting involved in making music. Therefore we work with some of those most in need – young people (age 10-24) facing barriers in the local authority areas of Middlesbrough, Stockton, Hartlepool and Redcar and Cleveland. We are funded by the national charity Youth Music and form part of the Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England (AMIE).

We are offering free targeted online tuition for ages 10-18 years for those facing barriers (up to 25 years for young people with a SEN Support Plan or those who identify as having a disability).

  • To demonstrate a good standard of behaviour at all times during sessions
  • To demonstrate a willingness to learn and listen to the instructions given by your tutor
  • To regularly attend sessions and let your tutor know if you are unable to attend*
  • To practice at home if you have access to your own instrument.

As parent or guardian of the participant you agree to the following:

  • You will ensure that the child in your care is available for the session as agreed with the music tutor
  • You will ensure that your child has access to the required equipment for the session to take place

* Cancellation Policy:

  • If either student or tutor is unable to carry out the session at the scheduled time, all parties must be notified and all efforts must be made to reschedule the session within the same week.
  • If a student does not attend a scheduled session and has not notified the tutor or Musinc in advance that they are unable to attend, this will be documented as a no-show. If this happens 3 times consecutively without reasonable reasons being given for the absences, Musinc reserve the right to withdraw the offer for 1:1 tuition.
  • If either student or tutor cannot carry out a session at the scheduled time and it is not possible to re-schedule, sessions which are paid for (either in full or part) can be carried over to the next half term block.

Photography and filming consent:

  • As part of our communications activity, Musinc uses photography / film of promotions and events for publicity purposes.
  • We may also wish to use short films of tutorials as part of our reporting evidence for our funders Youth Music to demonstrate the standard of the work that is being delivered by the tutor and the programme. This in turn could be shared with the media as part of promotional films for Musinc and Youth Music.
