About the School
Music Nation is the brain-child of guitar tutors Jonathan Vipond, Owen Griffiths and drum and percussion tutor Kevin Reid.
Formed in September 2012 in Leeds, the school follows the vision that learning about music is more than simply sitting in a room with a tutor for an hour every week.
Consequently the school aims to promote
musical development, appreciation, therapy and enjoyment through a range of activities that are as much about playing music and getting involved in music related activities as they are about learning and developing skills and understanding.
Visit the available lessons pages to find out more about how we can help you to be the musician that you would like to be.
Our tutors have many years combined experience in teaching.
