Customer Quotes

J.D.T Music Academy has offered a wealth of musical opportunities to our family, enabling our children to learn, have fun and enjoy success regardless of their age or abilities. The staff are friendly, welcoming, encouraging and knowledgeable and there is a real “can do” ethos at JDT. Our children are in their 5th year at JDT and simply love it – their smiles and enthusiasm for attending say it all!”
“My children would spend every day learning from the fabulous JDT music teachers if they could – they love it here. JDT has a real inclusive, family approach and feel about it.
I also can’t believe how quickly they have progressed with their music which makes me certain that I get real value for the money I spend on lessons here. But the best thing of all for me is that I get lots of opportunities to see the progression they are making.  Exams are offered at JDT, but their progress is about much more than the music. At the amazing Student Showcases I get to also see their positive growth in really important life skills like confidence, application, teamwork and social skills.”
