Who Are We?

"Discovering who we are opens the door to an exciting musical journey."

Scales Music

Scales Music was set up by Antoinette Scales in 2003. Antoinette, an ex-Cambridge Choral Scholar, felt there was a desperate need in London for Private Music lessons which were fun, challenging, fulfilling, focused and well run. Scales Music now has a very experienced team of excellent, highly educated and qualified teachers, all of whom are handpicked by Antoinette herself. Her teachers are all vibrant, talented, committed, personable and a lot of fun to be taught by. We provide tuition for those purely seeking to explore music for their own pleasure and also for those preferring to work their way through the well established and respected ABRSM examinations. We teach students at all levels from Beginner to Diploma for Instrumental Studies and from Grades 1 to 8 in Music Theory. We work closely with all the prestigious London Day and UK Boarding Schools, preparing children musically for the 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+, as well as for the corresponding Music Scholarships.


At Scales Music we are dedicated to musical excellence. We aim, quite simply, to be the best Private Music School in London. We have exceptional references, boast outstanding exam success and have many students who have gained a Music Scholarship to their chosen school, and very many who go on to study Music at Cambridge and Oxford University, as well as the London Music Colleges (RAM, RCM, GTSMD, RNCM), winning prizes and accolades for their achievements, such as London Young Musician of the Year.

We offer a well organised, bespoke service, and a truly personal touch.

We do look forward to .
