Music Lessons

Freer Ideas offers music lessons in Brighton that centre the student’s needs and musical goals rather than following a prescriptive course. This allows you to define what music making means for YOU, whether you want to play in bands, develop your sense of rhythm, or play music as catharsis for dealing with life’s struggles! So whatever your musical goals, get in touch to start learning now!

Music lessons for any gender, sexuality, race, class, age or ability!

Lesson Length

Instrumental lessons are offered on an individual, one-to-one basis or in small groups if the student(s) desire. They are usually one hour long unless the student specifically wishes otherwise. However, Freer Ideas only guarantees 50 minutes of actual teaching time (subject to the student arriving on time) due to student change over time between lessons.

Pricing System

We operate an honesty-based sliding scale payment system depending on how much the student can comfortably afford. Our suggestion for payment is £25-35 per one hour lesson.

This system allows us to keep teaching people who might not be able to afford lessons otherwise but are passionate about learning, whilst still functioning as a sustainable project.

If this is still unaffordable for you but you would still like lessons, email to ask about concession offers.


Notice of at least 48 hours for cancellation or rescheduling a lesson is very much appreciated. If this notice is not given, then the student will be asked to pay the full amount.
