    How much does it cost to take brass lessons?The actual lesson cost is £12 for 30 minutes or £20 for an hour session.The lessons are ran via SKYPE which is free, all you need is a webcam and a microphone.Grant can advise on buying an instrument but typically a new trumpet for £145 + and a Trombone for £195. There are a number of excellent quality instruments on the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] hand market and these can be bought at a fantastic price.
    Do I need lots of music books?Nope – for a beginning student all of Grants work is web based and for more advanced students appropriate music is provided for SQA exams.Grant does recommend the use of Smart Music software for all students.
    How will I know I'm getting better?Grant created www.brassblast.co.uk to give a good solid start to lessons and ensure all pupils progress at a good rate and this has a 3 level certificate system. For more advanced pupils Grant regularly presents pupils for ABRSM music exams and more recently Trinity Music Certificates.Lessons are delivered term time and a report is issued at the end of each session.
    I've been playing for a few years and struggling with playing issues will remote lessons work for me?Grant has given lots of master-class style lessons and follow ups with students around the globe of all ages and standards. He not only draws upon his teaching experience but also his own personal playing problems that resulted from facial nerve damage after an accident, 3 months after a major head injury Grant performed Bach's Christmas Oratorio.
