Frequently Asked Questions
Why learn at MusiqHub?
Music lessons are held at school to provide convenience for parents and children. Lessons may be either during school time or out of school hours.
In MusiqHub lessons children are encouraged through fun learning experiences; individually, in groups, bands and through performances. Each child develops their individual musical skills through structured but adaptable lesson programs, that are available across a wide range of instruments.
What instruments does MusiqHub teach?
MusiqHub teaches a wide variety of instruments. You can find out more about the different instruments here.
To find out what instruments we teach at your child’s school, use our search tool. Click on the instrument to meet the MusiqHub tutor for each instrument.
If your school does not show up in the search, MusiqHub is currently not offering music lessons at your school. If you believe there would be interest in bringing music lessons to your school, then please contact us. We are always keen to explore new opportunities.

Do students need an instrument?
Students need their own instrument, whether it's a guitar, saxophone, trumpet, or even a drum kit. Whatever you need to get started can be purchased from our online store, plus brass & woodwind instruments can be hired through the online store.
How often are the lessons?
Lessons are held once a week during the school terms. These last for between 8 to 11 weeks depending on the length of the school term. Students who decide to sit their International Music Exams will also need to participate in a few extra lessons during the school holidays before they sit their exam.
What happens if my child is sick and can't attend the lesson or forgets the lesson?
No refund will be given where a lesson is missed. Due to timetabling complexities the teacher is not obligated to offer catch-up lessons. If a student does not have their instrument at school they are still expected to attend lessons.
Teachers make every effort before invoicing for the term to check whether there are clashes with school events like sports days, school camps when children will not be available for lessons.
If the teacher is unavailable to give any scheduled lesson (eg. due to sickness) that fee will be carried forward and credited to the next term.
Will students need to buy books?
Students use the specially designed MusiqHub lesson books as part of the programme. These books cost $33 or $38. As students progress into more advanced skills and a wider variety of songs other books may need to be purchased.
How much practise does each student need to do?
We suggest beginning students do a number of short practices. While new students are developing their skills they will only have a few songs to practise so we suggest 5 -10 minutes a day. The best way to achieve this is to leave the instrument/s out of the case and in a handy spot. Here it will be picked up and played far more often than when it's in a case tucked away in a cupboard somewhere.
Once students have progressed and have a wider repertoire of songs and skills their practise time will naturally increase. By the second year of lessons students need to be practising for about half an hour each day or at least three to four times a week.
What is the best age to start learning a musical instrument?

Do students have a chance to perform?
Performing is one of the joys of being an musician. With this in mind Independent MusiqHub Teachers create as many performance opportunities as possible. Often the MusiqHub Bands or other instrumental groups will perform at School assemblies and other school gatherings.
During the last term of the year each Independent MusiqHub Teachers across the country holds a student concert. Students of all ages get the opportunity to perform with a session band in front of a big audience. It's a fantastic experience and a real highlight for many students. Many other opportunities to perform are also encouraged throughout the year.
What are the MusiqHub Programmes?
MusiqHub operates two main programmes which are interconnected through their specially designed curriculums. They are as follows:
Is a programme based around the Brass, Woodwind and Percussion instruments. Students learn from the specially designed and closely aligned MusiqHub books. This allows them to play together as a school concert band.
MusicHub Rock and Pop
This programme is based around the teaching of the Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano / Keyboard and singing. Just as in the band programme, students are encourage to form groups and play through their songs together.
Does MusiqHub offer exams?
Yes, but we know that exams are not for everyone, so they are available for those who want to sit them. To ensure MusiqHub students are examined to an international standard we can offer the exams through Trinity College London, ABRSM or the RockSchool. They are held in May /June and October / November each year. For more information around exams speak with your local Independent MusiqHub Teacher.
Does MusiqHub have any online resources?
MusiqHub has it's own Youtube channel with over 700 video and audio files that support our music books. You can find it here https://www.youtube.com/c/MusiqHubTutorials
These videos are also designed to help parents see what is expected of students and help with their practise at home.
