Our Directory of Providers can assist you with finding a music tutor.
You can use the filter options to narrow down your search. We suggest writing down your queries and questions for providers and then pasting it in to messages to a number of providers. Do remember that some providers may be fully booked at times so it is good idea to approach a few in the first instance. You can then base you decision on the responses you get.

If you wish to engage the services of an Associate to teach your child you should:
- Request your own references
- Ask for evidence of their public liability insurance certificate, and check it is up to date
- Check the Associate’s DBS status
How do I check the status of someone’s DBS?
- Request the music teacher/leader’s permission to check
- Ask for the following details:
- Date of birth
- DBS certificate number
- Visit the DBS Update Service checking page The Update Service
NOTE: the service asks for your organisation name – you can just enter your own name or “parent” for example. Anyone who has permission is legally entitled to check the DBS status.
If you use a provider who is not currently an Associate but you want to be able to access our subsidies and instrument hire then the solution is to ask them to become an Associate.
