Music has always played
a really important role in my life. it's a privilege to share my passion with so many like-minded people.

Music is a driving force in my life. It makes me feel alive, inspired and capable of anything. If I can help one person feel the same, then I've done my job!

The Clarke Family

"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!"

"JDT have been, and continue to be, a real inspiration to me and my family(6 of us!) as in turn we have all had tuition at this fantastic music academy. A huge thank you to Janel for helping me achieve my dream of being able to be a drummer! And thanks to Mitch for his Bass Guitar tuition.. our son Shane played in 4 venues in New York in April 2012 in a band formed by JDT. Thanks to you all at JDT, music is great therapy!"

"JDT has a real inclusive, family approach and feel about it.  I get lots of opportunities to see the progression my children 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."
