About Lowforce Education & Training

We have a wealth of teaching and training experience across all age ranges and a variety of subjects.

This experience has been gained through delivering workplace training and CPD in various employment sectors, plus work in Heritage Education, private tutoring and 20+ years of school-teaching experience, including Early Years & Nursery, Primary and Secondary phases.

Many changes have impacted upon education in recent years and none more than the use of new technologies in teaching and learning. We have been keen to embrace new opportunities and methodologies born from this and many of our courses are available for study online in the lowforcelearning virtual learning environment.

Instrumental Tuition


on Alston Moor


25% off standard Musician's Union Rates if you register by 31st July 2013.

8 session course for only £120

I feel that it's a good idea to begin learning an instrument with several frequent lessons that do not have long gaps between them (and even a week is a long time in this situation).

These summer courses are designed with this in mind: comprising 8 lessons, to be booked in the space of one month -August 2013.

Pupils do not need to have their own instrument at this stage. Using the teacher's 'student' instrument regularly, can avoid the risk of 'practising mistakes' at home while basic skills are mastered correctly. There is also, the advantage of not needing to spend money on an instrument until aptitude and commitment have been confirmed.

Between lessons, keen learners will be able to do activities online in the lowforce virtual learning environment and extend their learning about vocabulary, theory and listening skills they develop during their practical lessons.

It will be possible to book lessons on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays commencing 2nd August. For more information and to register please email Christine Lowthian.
