Mark is a hugely popular performer and we are very fortunate to have him as our amazing Piano teacher and has been teaching at Bentley for a number of years.  His lessons remain virtual currently but will be resuming face-to-face lessons later in the term. Most students are Year 3 upwards as pupils need to be reading to start. 

Bookings:  Contact Mark on 07986 309879 or via email purpledoor@talktalk.net

Violin and Oboe

Christine Meers started with us at Bentley in 2018 and is a renowned Alton Orchestra lead and teaches in other local stores too.  Christine also teaches children on a 1:1. Most children start from Year 3 upwards.  Please note that Christine is often able to hire our violins at a small charge but does not have access to an oboe so this would have to be self-purchased.

Bookings:  Contact Christine on 07967 043253 or via email chmeers@gmail.com

Guitar and Ukelele

Joshua Knibbs teaches the guitar and ukulele to small groups or on a 1:1 during the school. Year 3 upwards.
