WHAT WE OFFER
At Moray Music Lessons we offer Guitar, Ukulele, Bass, Piano and Fiddle lessons for all ages and abilities.
1-to-1 and 2-to-1 Lessons
Private lessons with a Tutor – Customised Learning Path
Electric Guitar Lessons
With the electric guitar, you’ll be able to plug in and play some of the most modern songs. You can learn to play all styles of Rock, Metal, Blues, Soul and Pop (and more) whilst focusing on key techniques. You can learn to play for fun or you can go through the grades and learn all the skills required to become an accomplished guitarist & musician with courses like Rockschool, Trinity Rock & Pop, RGT or London College of Music.
Acoustic Guitar Lessons
Using open chords, strumming and fingerstyle techniques you’ll learn to play an instrument that is popular in folk and country music. You’ve maybe noticed that most singer/songwriters use an acoustic guitar and there are good reasons for that. As with any of our lessons, you can learn to play for fun or you can go through the grades – it’s up to you!
The popularity of this little instrument is still on the rise, and more and more people are taking it up as their instrument of choice. Even though most people will take up the Ukulele and play it for fun, you can also do exam grades. Yes, that’s right, there are Ukulele grades! As with all of our lessons though, there’s no pressure to go through grades. It’s always up to you.
It’s a great instrument to play if you want to learn something a little bit easier than the guitar. It’s ideal for small fingers too, which is why a lot of kids are enjoying the Uke too.
Bass Guitar Lessons
Every great song has a great foundation, and that foundation starts with a great bass player. Learn to find the notes, how to tune it, and how to get a good sound from the Bass. Lessons are based on the goals of the student, so you’ll learn all about the techniques and fundamental skills needed whilst playing songs that you love.
Groups For All
Groups that are suitable for all ages
Learning to play an instrument can be a lonely thing. And it’s even lonelier if you’re preparing for an exam. Whether it’s for a performance exam or a graded exam, you’ll have lots of things to practice. So to help you get the grade you want, and enjoy doing it at the same time, we’re hosting Study Groups here at Moray Music Lessons. You can practice all the material required for your exam along with students who are studying for the same exam as you.
Here’s what you can expect from our study groups (these will vary depending on your grade):
- Practice with other students who are at the same level as you.
- Scales – we’ll go through all the scales that you should know for your grade.
- Arpeggios – we’ll practice all the arpeggios from your chosen grade together.
- Rhythm Playing.
- Lead Playing.
- Listening exercises (aural tests).
Each study group will cost £10 per person (minimum of 2 students) and will last 30 to 45 minutes depending on numbers in the group.

Groups for Adults
Learn to play in a group of similar-level students
Ukulele Club For Adult Beginners
The Ukulele Club For Adult Beginners group is a monthly Ukulele lesson – for adults. We’ve run plenty of Ukulele courses over the past few years and have found that no matter how long the course lasts (10 weeks, 4 weeks) someone always gets left behind. We totally understand that. Life tends to get in the way when you should be practising, and then you find yourself struggling to keep up with the rest of the group.
The beauty of this group is that every lesson is lesson 1! We will always go over the following basics:
- A brief history of the Ukulele.
- Parts of the Ukulele.
- How to hold the Ukulele.
- How to tune the Ukulele.
- Correct strumming technique and other common variations.
- Basic chords to get you started.
- Simple strumming patterns.
- Put all of that together and play some songs.
We cover the same things every time. The songs can change (for everyone’s sanity) but the ‘Lesson 1’ theme stays the same. So if you find that you haven’t had time to practice since the last group lesson, or you maybe didn’t understand what to do – who cares! You’ll get a chance to go over it all again at the next group. You can keep coming back as often as you like until you feel like you’re really comfortable with the Ukulele. The next step after that is to join us at our monthly Ukulele Club where we play all sorts of songs using all sorts of chords and strumming patterns.
The group is hosted in Elgin by Ukulele Tutor, Tom Morris and costs £4 each on the night.
