Buddy's Beats are the complete Music mentoring & confidence coaching service. Your fast track to Rock God status.

Whether you'd like to learn a new skill, enhance an existing one or simply blow off the cobwebs ("still got it!") - we're here to help.

We offer beginner - intermediate tuition on the guitar, drums & Piano / Keyboard. We also provide singing lessons & vocal coaching. Our lessons & courses are delivered online after an initial face to face consultation. The lessons are delivered in quick "micro beat" bursts that are guaranteed to be fun, unique & highly effective. Learn in a time frame that works for you! Exclusive access to your own personal learning platform!

Why Buddy's Beats? These lessons are not run of the mill "YouTube" videos (yawn.) Our sessions are delivered for YOU meeting YOUR requirements & working directly towards YOUR goal! This is why we meet before making your package. We'll get you where you want to be as quickly as possible. This isn't a promise of a "quick fix" however, we'll focus purely on what you'll need to know & cut out the majority of the jargon & theory (usually left in to make tutor / music School look good.)

So now you've learnt a new skill, how about a performance? Buddy offers extensive stage presence, public speaking & confidence coaching. Want to perform a family favourite at an up and coming event? Love the idea of serenading your new bride / husband? What about a truly unforgettable marriage proposal? We've got you. Not only that, but we'll get you "show ready" in 12 short lessons or less. Imagine the look on their faces when YOU are the star! Create amazing & ever lasting memories. Buddy will provide everything you'll need. No prior music knowledge is required to undertake any of our courses.

We'd love to Rock n Roll with you. Scroll down to check out our packages & see how we can help you "Give the performance of your life" Submit your enquiry & we'll get back to you in a micro beat. Don't forget to keep the party alive by following us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for updates, competitions, offers & live broadcasts.

Fantastic performance on Saturday 22/09/18 from Ashley. Personally felt like I had been transferred back to the 50's listening to the fresh sounds of Buddy Holly. Well done, you nailed it.
