Who are we?
Maestro Music are a successful husband and wife team which started from humble beginnings of just a handful of clients each, to now over 120 a week on a 1-1 basis. As a team, we work very well together with well defined roles. This formula is combined with a hard working attitude, unflinching dedication to the business, 6 days a week. We have built an enviable reputation as the company that people choose if they are serious about music tuition. People talk about Maestro Music which is why many of our new customers say they heard about us from friends or family.
How successful are we?
The scale of the business is unlike any other locally. Despite being fully booked and operating a waiting list, phone calls and e-mail enquiries continue to come in. People call us often knowing we are busy but are happy to wait for our services. We have an excellent exam pass rate and a reputation for high standards. We have also been established for over 10 years.
Who are your clients?
We teach children and adults, with many of the parents attending with their children being professional working people, with teachers, doctors and varying trades people choosing us for their children's tuition. We are in an excellent catchment area for schools, with both english and welsh medium primary and secondary schools within a short distance. We can say confidently that through our pupils, we have a presence in the vast majority of local schools. Our business also has a presence outside the county borough, with clients travelling from Chepstow, Merthyr Tydfil, Cardiff and Newport.
Teaching children and adults with special educational needs.
We are also building a reputation within the special educational needs community as a company that works with children with Autism and ADHD. We have also worked directly with social services to support the partially sighted, so they can access our tuition services.
We consider ourselves to be an inclusive company that offers everyone the opportunity to engage in music. We don't look at why we can't offer someone lessons, we look at why we can and why the client should choose us.
What have we invested?
We have invested vast amounts of time and energy in building the business and will continue to do so. We have even moved home and bought a property with the opportunity to develop an outbuilding into our dream studio. We will be investing 19 thousand ourselves and are looking for the final 11 thousand through sponsorship and advertising.
Why should you invest?
You will be advertising your service or product to our vast client base, 6 days a week, approximately 48 weeks of the year. Our clients are professionals, parents, children and adult learners with disposable income. So whatever your service or product, it has the potential to appeal to a variety of people with varying needs.
What will the money you raise be used for?
The project has two phases. The first is demolition and rebuilding the shell, which will be funded by us. The second will be building the internal structure and putting in place the final touches.
So from humble beginnings, teaching in our front room, to renting commercial premises and now building our own purpose built studio, the vision is to become self sufficient for years to come and solidify our success by continuing to offer top quality tuition with great customer care. We are known for our friendly, patient and professional approach to teaching, which is why we have such a large market share.
Testimonials from past and current pupils
1) Both my daughters have lessons with Maestro Music and have done for some years. Claire is always patient and has supported them to develop their music knowledge. My eldest recently acheived a distinction in her Grade 3 Piano which shows how much support and encouragement Maestro Music offers students and we are very grateful for all their hard work and commitment, both in piano lessons and violin lessons. Would definitely recommend to other parents of children who wish to kick start their child's musical education!
2)Maestro Music are excellent, for nearly 3 years now they have been teaching both my children and I would highly recommend them to anyone. My daughter has recently achieved her Grade 4 and my son is working towards taking his Grade 1. I have only ever found them helpful and reliable
3) My daughter has been playing the piano with Leigh for over a year now. He is very good with her and has lots of patience. Professional team and a clean and tidy environment for the children to learn.
4) I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving lessons from maestro music, I wanted to play for fun. Both tutors are experienced, friendly, approachable and fair. Leigh was my tutor, and as a mature student, I needed alot of time and patience, luckily Leigh was very supportive and I felt immediately at ease. Thank you for putting up with my excuses and helping me achieve my goals ????
5) So helpful and supportive. Couldn't ask for better.
