If you have any questions about pricing or anything else contact us at admin@tinderboxcollective.org

Full Price

Full price is £10 per lesson or £70 for the winter term for those who can afford it.

Free Places

Free places are available for people on low income.

Pay What You Can

If you can afford to contribute towards the cost of your lessons it will really help support the work we do.

Instrument Library

We are developing an instrument library where people can loan instruments out to take part in the music school.
If you want to learn an instrument at our music school but don’t have one at home, or if you want to try a new instrument but don’t want to buy one just yet, get in touch and we can try to loan you one: admin@tinderboxcollective.org
