Offering In-Home Lessons
Mobile Music Academy is designed to help our students grow out of the classroom. Our Adelaide music tuition lessons may be at your home, at the teacher’s house or hire a studio [includes extra hire cost].
We are devoted to the pursuit of excellence in music tuition and teach all ages, from beginners to experienced musicians, building the talent of each student in diverse musical styles to their greatest potential.
Playing music is not only about bringing out a talent and evolving it into a skill, it is a learning process that has significant benefits for a child's brain and emotional development. Our passionate and skilled team members are here to help our students make an impact on the world.
If you have an instrument at your home, why not let us come to your home and save time on travel. MMA offers individual and group lessons.
You may wish to play for fun, study for exams, or you can tell us what you would like to learn.
Once you have been in contact with us, we will send you an Enrolment Enquiry Form for you to fill out and return via email, which will provide us enough information to arrange for one of our tutors to contact you direct.
If you're a beginner, or your child is in the early stages of learning, it may be best to rent an instrument for a period of time at the beginning so that you can judge their development, enjoyment and progress.
Whether you wish to buy, hire to buy, or rent an instrument, we can put you in touch and contact with the professionals that we trust.

Tina and the team at Mobile Music Academy have been fabulous since our 5 year old daughter commenced home piano lessons. She previously attended a group lesson at a local music school and did not quite enjoy the experience.
A special thank you to Alice who has been wonderful with our daughter. She is extremely patient and has an acute sense of the pace at which our daughter wants to learn. Our daughter very much looks forward to Saturday afternoons and is progressing well.

We are so blessed having Alice teach Sebastian piano. Our son's learning delays means his attention can often drift.
Alice is respectful, understanding and most of all patient. It was beautiful watching him confidently perform at the end of year concert.
We have been so impressed with the guitar and drum instructors. After many years of lessons at school we can see our children can actually finally read music. Wish we knew about Mobile Music Academy before.
My Foster son was never able to do any musical activities and we noticed that he just loved singing and he really wanted to learn an instrument. So at 14, he started. We have been so lucky with Byron. He understands my lads special needs and focuses on the learning in a fun and non academic style. Just perfect for what my lad wants to do. And he has actually now even started writing his own songs and singing them. So basically in 18 months he has learnt so much and had so much fun doing it. Thanks again to the amazing tutor we have…
