Aberdeen Music Tuition was founded by ex-Bruce Millers music shop tutors Yvonne and Rod Stewart a few years after the music shop closed down. Yvonne graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Education (hons) degree in Music and is a qualified secondary school music teacher who has taught privately for 22 years. Rod is a professional musician, tutor, writer and producer. He spent 16 years working in London as a session bassist and has a wealth of knowledge on live performance.
Between them they offer tuition on piano, keyboard, clarinet, theory (up to Grade 5), bass guitar, guitar, beginner’s ukulele and music technology.
Drum tuition is provided by Stuart Rennie. Stuart has 10 years of teaching experience and has tutored many youth/community project groups within the city. Stuart is a highly experienced performer with 23 years of playing live. Please note, drum tuition takes place from an alternative location.
All tutors are PVG checked and have up-to-date certificates which are available to view on request.
The teaching rooms are spacious, clean and have good resources, sheet music and equipment. We don’t piano share between the tutor and student; there are two digital pianos in the room making teaching more comfortable and duets easier. We make use of the latest technology in lessons and can provide additional video support for each lesson we teach to enable students to maximise their practising at home.
Finding us is easy as we are conveniently located right in the city centre on Union Terrace. The closest public car parks are located on Golden Square (3 min walk away), Denburn (4 min walk) and Chapel Street (7 min).
