About Us

Our Vision

To raise the bar of contemporary music tuition in education, delivering inspirational and goal driven learning to produce continual development.

Our Purpose

To help our students create a personalised pathway to achieve their goals, ultimately leading to employment as a professional musician.

Our Values

Tailored Music Service specialise in delivering expert tuition in drums, guitar/bass, keyboard/piano and vocals. All of our tutors are active professional musicians. Their passion, ability and experience matched with our goal driven planning structure, facilitates fun and effective learning.

Our tutors create a visual development pathway for each student based on their own musical aspirations and integrate grade exams at key stages of the journey. We believe group performance is essential for progression and our tutors will lead band workshops that all are encouraged to attend.

Many of our students have gone on to study music at university and several have gained professional performing work with our parent company Tailored Entertainment.

We ensure all of our tutors are DBS checked and have received safeguarding training.

What makes us different?

Our Story

Tailored Music Service was set-up by experienced professional musicians and tutors, Nick Leigh and Olly Burjan. The clear vision for the company is to improve the quality of contemporary music tuition in education.

Nick founded leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment in 2008. Since it’s launch, the company has built an industry-leading roster of acts, featuring some of the most talented young professional musicians in the UK. Tailored Entertainment provide live music to a huge number of events in the UK and internationally. The opportunity to utilise the existing roster of musicians to inspire the next generation, as well as provide a direct link from education to paid professional work, sparked the formation of Tailored’s music service. Nick has a background in music tuition and has taught in schools and colleges for many years. A number of his former students are now working professionally for Tailored Entertainment – you can read more on them on our success stories page.

Olly is a professional musician and has performed all over the world with a number of leading artists. After returning from a long period of touring in 2012 he joined the Tailored Entertainment roster and continues to perform regularly. Olly has been a teacher and a coach since the age of 16. A huge part of his life has been focused on sport; Olly was coached professionally in rugby and tennis, and this experience gave him the belief that music tuition should work in a similar fashion. An enthusiastic coach, a goal driven program and a clear vision of how to achieve targets, leads to continual progression.
