Mobile Music Lessons on the NSW Mid North Coast

We can come to you!


Learn to play a musical instrument with a qualified and experienced teacher who has just relocated to Urunga from St Kilda, Melbourne.

If you are living in Coffs Harbour, Sawtell, Bellingen, Urunga, Nambucca Heads, Macksville, or the surrounds, we have limited spaces for private or group drum, bass, guitar, ukulele, keyboard and songwriting lessons.

We also offer band tuition and can help with learning new songs or running rehearsals.

Our lessons are inclusive. We believe everyone should to be able to afford to learn to play an instrument so our group lessons begin as low as $15 per student. Our unique approach is that we teach the songs you love. We allow students to study at their own pace and our lessons are tailored to each student’s individual needs, so you can do it for fun, or take it more seriously, it is up to you.

Our teacher Cory Blight has many years of experience performing, songwriting, recording, and teaching, both at JMC Academy, and from his own St Kilda based music studio in Melbourne, before relocating to the region in May 2018. Learn more about Cory here.

Lesson spaces are limited. If you’re interested in making a booking please call 0406 111 999 or email
