Parent – Current Piano Student
May 2021

We have been looking for piano lessons for our 6 year old daughter for some time now, this has been tricky recently due to the lockdowns! But TMA were really prompt and professional in answering our query and, even though she has only had 3 lessons so far, the amount she has learnt is amazing! We would highly recommend the Music Academy to anyone wanting to learn a new musical skill!


Current Violin Student
May 2021

As a child I always wanted to learn violin but I didn’t get chance to at the time. The years went by and suddenly I found myself as a middle aged retired lady in need of hobbies! I took the opportunity to get in touch with Thame Music Academy who were very helpful and informative. I started my lessons a couple of years ago and have always been very impressed with my teacher who is extremely knowledgeable, professional and above all fun! I have learnt an amazing amount so far and I can’t wait to continue with my lessons into the future. 


Current Guitar Student
March 2019

Our son has been having lessons with Karl for almost a year, he really loves it and can’t wait to get there every week! His progress has been outstanding and, with regular communication from Karl, we are always kept in the loop about what he is learning each week.

We can’t recommend the Music Academy highly enough! Their relaxed yet professional approach works perfectly.


Current Guitar Student
October 2018

 My 8 year old daughter has been attending guitar lessons with Simon at TMA for just over a year. We are amazed at the progress she has made from complete beginner to a confident intermediate. Simon’s creative and fun approach has really engaged her and, unbelievably, meant that she is now in a good system of regular practise at home! We look forward to seeing what she can do next.

We would highly recommend Thame Music Academy for instrumental lessons.


Current Music Theory Student
October 2018

I decided to take up lessons in music theory to further my knowledge of music as a whole, as a competent piano and violin player I have always felt a lack of understanding of the music and so on. I have now completed a course of 8 lessons with TMA and it has really opened up musical possibilities for me. They are professional, engaging and patient, always useful with someone my age! I regularly wax lyrical about the lessons to my family and friends and would certainly advise anyone who wishes to have music tuition attend the academy.


Current Guitar Student
October 2018

Our son began his guitar lessons with Karl at TMA around 6 months ago. He has always had a keen interest in music and wanted to try out an instrument as a hobby. Guitar was the obvious choice! So far his progress has been outstanding, from learning the very easy basics he has now progressed into learning whole songs, how to read music and also finger picking and guitar riffs! Each student is really looked at as an individual and Karl works on his strengths as well as improving on his weaknesses, we look forward to the next step! I am so pleased we found Thame Music Academy and would recommend it to anyone looking for lessons.


Current Drum Student
March 2018

My son has been coming for drum lessons with Tom since last year and has really flourished! We wanted to find an instrument that would work well for him and this has definitely been the right choice. With Tom’s fantastic and engaging teaching style our son has learnt a huge amount in a relatively short amount of time, we would highly recommend the music academy, they have a friendly, hard working and professional approach to their music tuition, a great asset to Thame!


Current Piano Student
March 2018

Having had piano lessons at a young age I then took a rather long, 35 year!, break and wanted to pick it back up again just for fun. Simon has been very supportive and encouraging right from the outset, helping me dust off my old music books and re-learn all of the basics so I can really enjoy time playing, there is no pressure within our lessons but a definite drive to succeed and work hard which has really helped me get back on track!

I can’t recommend TMA highly enough for anyone wanting music lessons.
