“Won't search for a teacher myself again ”

Written on: 17/05/2014 by WestonWarner (1 review written)

London Music Centre is a great agency, I don’t have to look for any tutor, I don’t need the interviews, CV vetting, no need to go out there and sweat for the perfect teacher - they do it for me. I'm busy, I don't have the time to faff about. I have been very picky with our current teacher as we have had problems with so many self employed teachers who kept chopping and changing- their way or no way! I thought otherwise and contacted LMC. 24 hours later came the first suggestion which we… Read Full Review

“Over the Moon”

Written on: 15/05/2014 by MalcolmReid69 (1 review written)

So we've been looking for a new tutor for our daughter for quite some time. One teacher comes in another goes out but no one steady, nothing serious and we're at the bottom of their priorities. Well you see, London Music Centre is different. You get a dedicated team. So far I know three teachers and each one shines differently. Without boring you with the details, they're simply a happy bunch of stars. Get them to offer you with a teacher. 48 hours later and you're as happy as Larry. That's… Read Full Review

“Teacher clueless”

Written on: 12/05/2014 by SeamusCassidy (1 review written)

I am SO unsatisfied with the two teachers I have had from London Music Centre now. Both of them were hopeless in helping me with things and helping me get started with my new instrument (I'm just a beginner guitar) and I'm really very unsatisfied that this second teacher now keeps cancelling and rescheduling my lessons whenever he feels like it. I'm a busy professional person and do not take kindly to being messed about like this!! LMC are quick to get on the phone with endless phone calls and… Read Full Review

Dear Seamus,
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your dissatisfaction with our service.

At LMC we always take the time to ensure that we find the right teacher for each student.

We call each of our clients monthly to obtain feedback in order to confirm satisfaction and always welcome constructive criticism in order for us to improve our performance.

We would love to know which of our teachers you had this experience with so we can investigate this matter further and we would like to offer a refund for those lessons which you felt were below the standard expected.

Best thing to do is go to a guitar shop or a local music shop and they'll be able to recommend tutors, and they'll also be able to suggest good tutor books too. Another thought is that quite a few community centres offer guitar classes for beginners and advanced, so perhaps that is something worth looking into.

“A new family member ”

What a great session we just had with an LMC vocal tutor. My daughter held the teacher at her arm asking her not to leave. We want her to join our family as a new member! We are seriously impressed by their speedy and reliable service. Top notch LMC!… Read Full Review

Wouldn't you better off just employing the teacher directly?

“Music teacher”

Written on: 27/02/2014 by Tonip1 (1 review written)

Our daughter had the most miserable teacher ever, she's been notified she'll be the last one with any musical abilities. Since Adel started flute lessons with her she has flourished and moved up musically to levels no one could have imagined! She is performing in public and enjoying her session! She has progressed academically as well as a result. We never want to leave Adel, Never!… Read Full Review

“Most impressive service”

Written on: 09/10/2013 by Murrayjack (2 reviews written)

Both my 2 boys and myself take lessons from London music centre. Different instruments so different tutors for the task. Both teachers have been exceptional and 100% reliant. I am sure we will continue working with them for a long time. Thank you so much for your help over the last few years. My children have made huge advancements as well as myself, and I am really proud of what they have achieved. Most importantly, they have found a passion for music which is a wonderful passion to have… Read Full Review

“SO satisfied, perfection is the word!”

Ok I must admit its not that easy to start posting reviews, waiting for email confirmations and all else only to say thanks to such a wonderful team. I mean, I told them that already over the phone, is it not enough?! Then I thought the really good things in life have to be published, otherwise it may be as if it never took place... London Music Centre you're 100% wonderful, perfect, accommodating, deeply understand your clients and students wishes and above all deliver every time. This… Read Full Review

“sad to find what is behind education ”

Written on: 04/10/2013

I was completely devastated when I heard that my son's teacher was earning just over a half what we were paying the LMC every month. I do understand that they were the one who put us in touch but they could take that sort of commission for a shorter period and not constantly, considering it is the teacher who travels to us and deliver the lesson every time while the agency does not even have a building that is rented. My son is still very attached to the teacher and his progress is just… Read Full Review

I'm really not happy with this service. I asked for a guitar teacher. The person they provided could barely play guitar, didn't read normal music and was dressed so inappropriately for my daughter I asked him to leave immediately. Not good… Read Full Review

Sounds pretty weird especially with my experience with their services over the past 1.5 years. I do know they work with about 250 teachers so there bound to be some rotten apples...

What I can say is that they are very serious about their reputation and get teachers off their books for the slightest drop of commitment they know of.

I can also confirm they call me each and every month, making sure I am happy with my teacher, that my son's enjoys his lessons and make good progress. Actually when he got to Grade 2 with distinction Elliot and LMC was the first place I notified they were elated!

I have brought that matter to the LMC team to see if it was possible that they had any such guitar teacher like the one described above.
You may probably probably think it is unreal but they emailed me the CV's of all of their 35 guitar teachers (with the teachers' consent naturally) - ALL of them are graduates of the Royal Academy, Royal College of music, Guildhall school of music and drama, Trinity and other unbelievable names. My goodness- how I want to begin guitar lessons with them now! (always fancied the Blues...)

And for the record, they mentioned some bullying from a couple of ex tutors to assign them more students or they would leave them with some consequences... I guess that's that.

To my despair LMC do not find the above practice worthy of issuing a clarifying statement so this is my little effort to do it on their behalf.

Sorry, but I'm really suspicious of these comments. Why don't you work for LMC then, if they're so good, and the teachers paid so little??

LMC charges:
£25 for 30 minutes lesson
£35 for 45 minutes lesson
£40 for 1 hour lesson

The teachers get:
£15 for 30 minutes lesson
£20 for 45 minutes lesson
£25 for 1 hour lesson

“Simply best service!”

Written on: 09/04/2013 by H.Yaffe (1 review written)

I called the London Music Centre after a series of failed attempts elsewhere to arrange a suitable teacher for my needs, as I am studying for my diploma. Although most teachers I came across elsewhere were reasonably satisfactory as performers, they have missed that charm of being a teacher as well! Within 24 hours of contacting the LMC, Elliot understood exactly what was needed and assured me he will personally pursue the most suitable tutor for me as quickly as possible. Mind you it was the… Read Full Review

I have been reading lots of good things about LMC and I am interested. Could you please mention the average price per lesson of this establishment?

“BEST MUSIC SCHOOL OUT THERE!! ”

Written on: 22/03/2013 by Livoliv (1 review written)

I had wanted my son to learn piano for ages - but couldn't seem to find the right teacher for him who would encourage him in an exciting way and who was available at the times we need (he has a busy schedule!) I called London Music Centre and had an extremely pleasant and warm conversation with a member of the team. Less than 24 hours later, a teacher was organised for my son - the most inspiring, warm and highly accomplished teacher. My son is now studying for his grade 4 and has achieved… Read Full Review

“You simply can't ask for better teachers! ”

Written on: 06/12/2012 by rubypenman (1 review written)

Looking for a music teacher has been made so easy for me. I got tired receiving some teachers details from other mothers in my son's school hoping the teacher is properly qualified and going to be available when I need the lessons to take place. it always boiled down to "I can only come at that day at this time, take it or leave it" or "I have some experience teaching but no CV" or "half an hour isn't long enough for me to justify the journey" and so forth! The London music centre has been… Read Full Review

“Big surprise on customer service”

Written on: 15/10/2012 by KateJGR_UK (1 review written)

As a PA for major UK artist, we had to get a piano teacher and a piano within 48 hours. I was amazed by the slow, lazy and indifferent attitude we have been experiencing from agencies, teachers and dealerships alike managing to arrange anything for us, no matter how important it was to get my client on track with the lessons and the amount of energy wasted on back and forth negotiations and compromises willing to be made. We have noticed the LMC's website and gave it a go. A missed call was… Read Full Review

“Great teachers @ LMC ”

Written on: 17/07/2012

We have enjoyed working with the London music centre and its teachers since day 1. The process has worked quite well for us, for which we are pretty pleased. Elliot Mann and the team were fabulous, professional and to the point. I always feel as if I'm the only client there, and every request has always been professionally addreessed immediately. I've never dealt with a better agency before (and I did get my fair share of aggregation from others previous to the LMC)!   I thank them for their… Read Full Review
