Meet the Team

Booths Music has been an invaluable resource to the musicians of Bolton and beyond since 1832. We feel we have some of the most experienced music tutors in the country, who are hand for music lessons throughout the week from our town centre premises. Although tutors experience great demand, we are always happy to accommodate new pupils for music lessons and tuition of many popular instruments.
