Ron Leigh’s Music Factory has long been considered Melbourne’s No 1 choice for music lessons and this reputation just continues to grow.
Why? The shop started originally as a teaching studio, and quickly developed a reputation for excellence in music education. With Ron’s background, music education has always been a vital part of his life .
Over the past 40 years, the store has worked with the best teachers in Melbourne to offer lessons for players of all abilities and ages. So whether you are a beginner or advanced player we can help.
We offer lessons in Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Piano or Keyboard, Ukulele, Mandolin / Banjo, and Singing.
ROCKSCHOOL is our preferred course of modern music instruction
WHY???… Well, not only is it the number 1 Contemporary Music Syllabus in the world, but as well as being one of the largest providers of the program in Australia, we are also one of the major exam centres for Victoria.
Rockschool exams and syllabuses are now being delivered in Australia by the AMEB (Australian Music Examination Board) Rockschool is a vibrant, contemporary music program of exams and globally recognised qualifications for guitar, bass, drums, vocals, piano, band-based keyboards and bands. The course specialises in music of the most popular genres in a range of rock, pop, metal, reggae and funk styles.
It is of course not essential to do exams, but the program offers a comprehensive pathway via the syllabus and support materials, including grade books, companion guides, theory and technical handbooks and backing recordings. You can therefore use this course for fun; to develop practical skills in a variety of modern music styles, or do the exams from Debut through to Music Performance and Music Teaching diplomas. (Diplomas for both Music Performance and Music Teaching are at equivalent to 2nd and 3rd Year University Degrees.)
All of our teachers are able to teach the exam and syllabus, and we stock all current work books.
ROCKSCHOOL is our preferred syllabus and is recognised world wide. We still offer AMEB and ANZCA if you would prefer to follow these courses.
Lessons are available at the shop, Monday to Friday from midday till 9.00 p.m., and Saturdays from 9am till 4pm.
The current investment is $140 for a course of 4 half hour private lessons.
In fairness to both student and teacher, we ask for the commitment of 4 weeks, as we have found this to be the minimum time required for both teacher and student to “get-to-know” one another and determine if the desired progress is being made.
Note: We require 24 hours notice for cancellation of a lesson or the lesson will be forfeited.
