Hey everybody. We hope you're all being safe out there and not finding the lock down too stressful.

A number of pupils have been enjoying online music lessons with our team of amazing tutors and we have so far received lots of encouraging feedback.

If you (or your children) are working on a piece that your tutor has asked you to learn, please do send us a video of a home performance and we can share it out on our social media. Music helps to spread a lot of great feeling when times are difficult and we hope that showing off how talented our students are will bring some happiness to viewers across the internet.

Well it's been a very unconventional week for us all here at Booth's but I would like to take this opportunity to thank all you students and parents out there for bearing with us while we have been processing everybody with online music lessons.

There has been an incredibly positive response to the online lessons with most tutors now set up and offering sessions directly from their homes. It is great to be part of such an amazing team and all of us staff members would like to thank each tutor for their efforts in ensuring that lessons can continue for the foreseeable future.

If you are have not yet managed to book in for an online lesson but would like to, please speak with your tutor or feel free to message this page.

There will be more to come next week when we should be in a position to open lessons up to the general public.

Stay safe everybody. Tony, Jean, James, Colin and Matthew.

My 8 year old came in on Sunday for his first guitar lesson with James. At 12.00 he had to be told that he was holding his guitar the wrong way round and at 12.30 he came home to show his Mum he could play Jurassic World!!!! He's full of enthusiasm and cant wait for next week. Thank you.

Very amenable staff, friendly atmosphere, extensive range of accessories, both new and used, also have a workshop where they will knock you up some bespoke pieces if needed. Also were kind enough to let me advertise in shop for no fee, it just doesn't get any better than this really.

Friendly local music shop. Knowledgeable staff, always have the bits in that you need. Impressive collection of strings, straps, accessories, and various instruments. I've even had luck buying a Floyd Rose saddle block from here, something you'd usually have to get on eBay.

Just wanted to say Thank you again for the excellent repair you have, just done on my old Peavey bass guitar neck. The bass plays great and the neck is now straight as an arrow, which is my personal preference. A great shop run by wonderful people all the best.

Unfaultable. Always has everything I need in stock and the staff are always willing to assist. From the small things of kazoos and harmonicas to guitar restringing I have been helped with everything. Highly recommendable and a joy to see a local business doing so well.keep up the great work.

Took my guitar in for a repair, which is putting it mildly, god knows what had been done to it before it was given to me. New frets, and some serious rehabing later it looks great and sounds great.They even remembered to restring it for a left hander. I honestly though it was a lost cause but they proved me wrong and for less than a cheap replacement would have cost.

Although I've only visited twice I'd definitely recommend any music enthusiast to visit. A friendly group of staff who'll happily let you try out any instrument you're interested in as well as their other services listed on their website, just google Booths Music and it'll be the first one. I'll certainly be returning for any future needs.
