Other Services

As well as our core service of providing instrumental and vocal tuition, the Swindon Music Co-operative offers a range of additional musical services.
All of our teachers are DBS checked to the enhanced level and hold insurance through either the ISM or MU, so you can be sure that whatever your requirements, our teachers are covered to work legally and safely.

Music Theory Tuition

Several of our teachers are experienced music theory tutors. If you are starting from scratch and working your way through the grades, wanting an intensive course of lessons to blitz the grade 5 theory exam so you can forge ahead with the practical exams, or just curious to know the difference between an appoggiatura and an acciaccatura then get in touch and we can find the music theory tutor for you.

Curriculum Support

A number of our music teachers are also qualified and experienced classroom teachers. If you need somebody to support the delivery of your music curriculum, or even somebody to lead it, we can provide a suitable teacher. Please get in touch and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.

Ensemble Direction

If you need an experienced ensemble director, we have several teachers who have specific ensemble rehearsal and direction experience. String groups, wind bands, flute choirs, full orchestras, vocal groups… at school, in the evening or even weekends, we have it covered.

Accompanying Services

Accompanying is a unique set of skills requiring not only technical and musical proficiency on the piano, but also keen listening and ensemble skills, the ability to recognise the need for help and to be able to give that help to whoever you are accompanying through subtle visual and musical cues, and the ability to cope with sudden and unexpected shifts in tempo, dynamics, style and bar number as you ride the wave of somebody else’s musical interpretation of a piece! Luckily, a number of our teachers have these skills along with vast experience in accompanying. Exams ranging from grade 1 through to diploma level, university or music college auditions, music competitions, concerts and GCSE/A-level performances – if you need an accompanist, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
