The Academy creates musicians. Born out of a belief that music is for everyone and developed to challenge those who disagree. We strive to commit every music lesson to enhancing, inspiring and teaching the next generation of musicians.
We teach according to individuals’ needs and desired outcomes, whether that be taking lessons as a recreational activity, passing music examinations or becoming a professional musician.
The company resides in a four storey building in the heart of Camden (London) complete with Grand Piano, Music Rooms, Dance Studios (for hire), Cafe and a state-of-the-art Recording Studio.
Through its doors walk budding young musicians, aspiring singer/songwriters and rising stars. A hub of creativity, passion and ambition - the atmosphere is electric and inspiring; an infectious place to work, learn, teach and create.
Ensembles, bands, choirs and performance troupes are the catalysts behind the musical energy of The Academy. Regular concerts and gigs take students out of the classroom and onto the stage; performance (we believe) being at the heart of every musicians’ success.
Unique to The Academy is our musicianship course, a syllabus we are championing as our piece-de-resistance - group classes which integrate an internal understanding and connection to music alongside the teaching of theoretical and technical knowledge. Those who graduate from this pioneering course will do so with the ability to understand everything they hear, compose, arrange and speak the language of music fluently.
The Academy has witnessed the inspired and passionate teaching of some of the country's most sought after musicians and nurtured many a young musician through their musical journey. More than just providing an education, (albeit an education which challenges current preconceptions of the music institution), The Academy encourages an all-encompassing experience of the music industry.
A world behind the doors of number 15 Pratt Mews where everyone is invited to connect, learn, teach, perform, write, create and succeed together.Charged with raising the bar in the world of musical education and setting new bench marks, The Academy Team will stop at nothing to provide and achieve excellence. Expect great things from the knowledgeable, inspired and musical bunch who are driving their remarkable ethos forward.

Great Teachers, amazing atmosphere and superb Edara Method. The Academy has got it all! I have joined the Academy for a few piano lessons and almost 2 years on I have not only massively improved my understanding of music but I got to love it so much more and have now played 4 different instruments on Academy concerts! Learning never felt more fun and easy and wanting to come back for more! :) More...
The Academy is a great environment to learn music. The staff, setting and building are all fantastic. It has a very buzzy feel, with the young, friendly, enthusiastic staff. My daughter has been taking piano lessons for about a year. She is very fond of her teacher (Alice), finds the lessons enjoyable - so much so that she's happy enough to do her practice. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is that it is relatively expensive, I guess because the price includes the extras the Academy offers, such as cafe and reception areas (as well as the very high standards of teaching!).

A place where music is the main focus and enjoyed by all, an amazing atmosphere to be in where it is easy to make new friends and become inspired. Definitely the best place to be if music is something you want to pursue when your older, very thankful I found out about this The Academy and definitely recommend it to everyone I know, if you love music this is the place to be. 5 STARS :) More...
I have been using one of the lovely upstairs Studios for Bellydance classes - everyone is always friendly and kind. Then I've joined the vocal masterclass - meeting a bunch of even friendlier people and a nice teacher who is very funny and professional. Now I'm looking forward to going to the Christmas concert!

I was curious about learning the violin so I had a taster session with Alice.Such a nice woman, very quick and smart and honest. If all of their tutors are like her it's no wonder they have such a sterling reputation. More...
As an adult venturing back into music this has been the best place I could possibly have found to start my journey. Between Harriette's vocal coaching and Tom's Songwriting course, I have increased my confidence with my musical ability and understand the importance of learning the fundamentals of music which are taught in such a way that it is much easier to digest and more fun than the chore of music theory back in school.Thank you!
The best music school so far for our boys. I cannot praise enough the dedication, professionalism and enthusiasm of the staff. The encompassing musicianship course is giving them such fantastic music skills and is such good value. The boys are already looking forward to the summer courses. More...

What originally started out as a group-on deal for five lessons, has kept me returning to the North London Music Academy for the last five months! The warmth, patience and attention of the staff, and being lucky enough to be taught by such a talented team of professional musicians, has aided me with my performance confidence and skills.Do not think that the Academy is just for school children either! It is for all ages! I am a 33 year old professional, who has attended both singing lessons and their song writing course, and am currently considering sharpening up my guitar skills there too.I only wish that such a place had been around when I was younger, because it would not only have helped me thrive musically, but strengthen my self-confidence in all that I do.
