The Elgar School of Music is located beside Huntingdon Hall in the centre of Worcester, home of Elgar, one of Britain's greatest composers. We opened for lessons in 1983 and ever since have welcomed students of all ages and abilities for both individual and group tuition. We aim to provide the very best in musical education, whether as an academic pursuit or purely for relaxation and enjoyment. As well as instrumental and vocal tuition we provide lessons at GCSE, AS and A Level as well as Musical Theory. Group activities range all the way from String Orchestra through to Jazz and Folk ensembles. We stage regular concerts to give our students experience of "the spotlight". During the holidays we run master-classes and workshops and in summer we take part in the Worcester Festival.


The school is a centre for ABRSMRegister of Guitar Tutor, Trinity,Trinity Rock and Pop Exams.  We are also a registered centre for the Trinity Certificate for Music Educators (CME).
