Thank you for visiting...

MusicFirst NI is an independent school of music that proudly places music first. 

While offering all the benefits of a musical community such as concerts, classes, ensembles and private tuition, we provide personalized musical development for any level, genre and age (toddler to mature adult) - with the convenience of conducting all communication directly with the tutor.

Through our diverse, yet complimentary curricula, our international team of tutors specializes in making theory practical. Specialism is an important word here at MusicFirst NI, as our tutors only teach their own first-study instruments and subjects in which they have performed professionally.**

Come learn from teachers who can and are doing!
We would love to help you advance your musical knowledge, refine your solos, enhance your improvisation skills and polish your performance, all while boosting your confidence and having fun.

To get started you can contact us by email or phone, stop by our new facility on Botanic Avenue and/or 'like' us on Facebook.
 

**Disclaimer: Despite limited opportunities in Northern Ireland for professional boomwhacker-ists, music bingo champions, lords of the circle-dance and maestro story-singers, our Children's Department is still of unrivaled quality.

MusicFirst NI: Studio A, 46 Botanic Ave, Belfast, BT1 2NB

NOW OPEN! This is a Music Theory class where Garvin will guide you through everything you want/need to know, from the very foundations up to Grade 5 in either Popular (Rock, Pop, Country, Jazz & Blues) or Classical Music Theory. Students will work through a series of workbooks and exercises designed to progress their understanding, and (if they choose to sit them) also prepare them for exams. Garvin runs a low-pressure class, and works one-to-one with students, checking work, explaining concepts, and meeting them at their point of need, to instill confidence and understanding in all areas of music and help unleash each student’s potential at a pace dictated by the student.
