Free Try-Out Sessions

Looking to try something new? Ever pictured yourself playing the guitar? Do you have a child nagging you daily to let them learn the drums?

Why not take advantage of our free try-out music lessons with one of our fabulous tutors!

What Can I Try?

We offer 1-on-1 sessions across a wide range of instruments from piano, guitar and drums, to flute, saxophone, trombone and many more. We even have vocal try-out sessions too.

How Long Does a Session Last?

A session will last approximately 20 - 30 mins depending on the tutor. They are designed to give you an experience / snapshot of what a full lesson would resemble.

What if I Don't Have an Instrument?

We can supply you with an instrument to borrow for your try-out session if you wish. Please let us know that your require one when you fill in the request form. Or you can bring your own.

Is It Really Free?

Yes - the try-out sessions are free of charge. There is no obligation to sign up for music lessons, but these sessions are best suited to those interested in starting lessons. There is a maximum of two try-out sessions on different instruments per student.

Face-to-Face Sessions

Try-out sessions will be held either at Hogan Music in Newbury or in Kingsclere (Tuesdays - classical guitar only). We have a range of COVID-19 safety measures in place for these face-to-face try-out sessions:

  • Face coverings should be worn around the building and during the session (unless exempt or trying out a wind, brass or vocal session).
  • Windows will be open to ventilate the room so please ensure you wear appropriate clothing.
  • All surfaces are cleaned with anti-viral cleaner between lessons and try-out sessions.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19 or present any symptoms, you should not attend your try-out session and follow current government guidance. Please contact us to advise that you are not able to attend.

When Can I Book A Session For?

Once you have filled in the request form we will be in touch to arrange a date and time for your try-out session.
