About Our Music School

Primavolta Mobile Music Tuition was founded in 2006 starting with just one teacher.  The teacher had a vision of providing music tuition that a learner would enjoy without having the commitment of weekly travel.  The idea was to have the music school travel to the home of the student for not much more money than if you went into a local town to a music school with premises.  

Primavolta very quickly developed further initiatives to keep the long term interest of the student going through the natural ups and downs of having lessons. The first such scheme came with our 'Pupil of the Month' scheme. The idea was to reward excellent work by selecting one pupil of the school to receive a certificate, small prize and recognition on our website.  This scheme was so popular we launched our 'Pupil of the Year' scheme in 2010. Every pupil was given a 'Point Log'.  The log was given to each student for stickers to be placed in each week.  For every good week of practice in the 'Pupil Log', a sticker was given to the student.  Bonus points are rewarded for extra special work, exam results and participation in the charity concert.  The student with the most points at the end of the school year wins the title 'Pupil of the Year'.  They receive an engraved ipod shuffle and certificate as a prize.  Our first such 'Pupil of the Year' was Lois Law from Blackpool.

(BELOW) - Our Pupil 'Playing Log' used to record and reward work taking place for our students.

Also in 2010 we had enough demand in our initial territory, Blackpool and Preston, to launch our own music examination centre at Newton Bluecoat School near Kirkham.  The centre now operates twice a year and has become very popular with outstanding results with a high level of disctinctions.

Over the last few years we have interviewed and taken on teachers of numerous musical instruments.  These teachers are interviewed carefully and are expected to deliver tuition to the same high standards, with the same concepts applied across the school.  We now have teachers of most mainstream instruments and even some unusual instruments such as the harp!

In 2011 we launched Primavolta outside of Lancashire for the first time.  Primavolta now has excellent teachers focussed on the Sheffield area and the concept has started to snowball in the area.  We now cover Sheffield, Chesterfield, Leeds and Barnsley in the Yorkshire and Derbyshire areas.

Moving to 2012, Primavolta continues moving forward.  2012 sees our first charity music night.  The night is designed to allow students the chance to showcase their talents while raising money for fantastic local charity work.  Our first charity is Brian House Children's Hospice in Blackpool.  In 2013 we plan to run a second event for Donna's Dream House.  As Sheffield develops we also plan to hold similar chaity events in the Yorkshire area.

Also in 2012 we are in the process of launching Primavolta in Manchester.  We have also started releasing a series of our own music books.  These books have been written and developed with the backing of years of teaching experience.  We hope that these workbooks will enhance learning within the school. 

Finally in 2012 saw the launch of this new website.  The vision was to provide a useful website to both student and teacher while being informative to prospective new students.  The concept of our student log on area was developed.  This was designed to allow the student access to resources while they are a member of the school.  The resources would be updated to constantly improve 'library' available to the student.  The libary would include 'in house' developed music theory worksheets and music.  Students would also be able to log on to access exam results and letters for future events. 

We see ourselves as innovative and are always looking at ways we can develop our mobile music school.  If you are considering tuition with us we can assure you we will do our best to make music tuition as fun, but as successful as possible.  Learning music can be a long journey, we aim to make the journey as smooth as possible!

From everyone at the Primavolta team!
