music lessons brisbane


Learning music is something that everyone can and should do.

Our classes are different at IMA. We are more mentors than teachers:

A Mentor is someone who doesn’t teach, they guide.

A Mentor doesn’t push or lead, they progress with you.

A Mentor knows how to help you get there because they’ve been there themselves.

Whether that’s your own voice, a guitar or a piano, there are plenty of options. We are entirely independent having assembled our own talented team of professional musicians, mentors and tutors who will be able to help you achieve everything you want to in the world of music. Regardless of your experience, our expert staff will make the process of learning enjoyable and tailored personally to you.

Here at Independent Music Academy, we have 20+ years of experience backing us up when we say that if you want to play music, we know that you will be able to.

The human voice is one of the most powerful and resonant instruments in the world, and we’re committed to helping you use yours better. For many, this all starts with education and understanding for you to be able to use your voice better. You need to know how it works and how to use it in a safe way. If you are not careful, your voice can get damaged very easily.

No matter your level of experience, even if you can’t hold a note right now, that’s no reason not to step forward and seek help from our professional mentors. We have a range of special exercises that will help you to gradually improve your ability to hold a note and eventually carry an entire song. It’s a big journey to go on, but we will be with you helping you out every step of the way.

Outside of beginners, we also help people who already have a background in singing. We offer high-level teaching to those who want to hone their craft. You will learn vocal exercises that help to develop your voice and improve the sound you’re capable of producing with it. There are always new things out there singers can learn and improve on. And that can be really exciting. We’re here to support you as you grow and get better.

Please find our Singing Lessons Page, we look forward to helping you!

Guitar Lessons Brisbane

We’ve spent decades helping people learn to play the guitar and improving their skills via our mentoring process. Everything we do is geared toward helping you grow as a guitarist. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you’re interested in playing, we can support you on your journey. It doesn’t matter what level of skill you currently have; we can provide lessons that will have value for you.

We understand that people tend to learn guitar more quickly when they love the music they’re practising. That’s why we don’t force you to learn certain songs or certain types of music if you feel no connection with it. In the end, this produces better outcomes for students and a much more pleasurable experience too. When you’re enjoying learning, you learn and pick things up faster.

You might be a beginner who’s found no luck trying to learn from a book. Or maybe the self-teaching route has already failed you. No matter where you’re currently at with your learning process, you should come to us and speed things up. Our learning and mentoring techniques will bring you great enjoyment as your guitar skills increase.

Piano Lessons Brisbane

We offer piano lessons guided and mentored by experienced professional pianists. Our lessons are perfectly suited whether it is your first day, or you are an advanced pianist looking to fine-tune your craft with expert guidance.

Our philosophy with the piano is the same as other instruments when it comes to teaching. We will thoroughly understand what you are looking to get out of your lessons and make sure we realise it. There is no one size fits all solution to teaching music and our mentors will ensure that your path is followed.

Just like any instrument, it’s important to practice the piano each week to improve. The old cliché about practice making perfect still holds true. And we’ll help you stick with it and keep on persevering, even if you feel like giving up entirely. Outside of focusing on playing music, you’ll also have the chance to learn about music theory, chords, chord reading, scales, transcription and many other important things too.

The mentors you’ll be learning from and guided by know which techniques are the most important ones for you to focus on and which can be cast aside and ignored. Their knowledge and experience will be among the things that help you to grow as a pianist, no matter where your current ability level is at.

Getting started with Music Lessons

Here at Independent Music Academy Brisbane, we are committed to helping people achieve their goals when learning how to sing or play a musical instrument.

Our individual one on one lessons are common, however, we also offer group introductory classes.

Our lessons are given in blocks of 12, 9, 6 and 3 lessons. Lessons start at $40 per half hour. We also offer casual lessons (book the day before) at $48 per half hour.

Though playing music is easy, it takes time to learn to play, and we have to spend time with you to help you get the most out of your playing.

Your first lesson with IMA will be all about finding out what you want from your lessons.
This will cover what music you enjoy listening to, what music you would like to play and any specific stuff you might want to know (chord construction, how to read tab, how to improvise etc).

If at the end of your first lesson, you feel that we can teach you what you want to learn, then you can sign on for a full term of lessons.

With the right help from the right people, there is no reason why you can’t learn to sing or play a musical instrument. You don’t have to be born with a natural talent to be able to enjoy music. You too can unlock your own vast potential. So, what are you waiting for?
