Brothers Duncan and Michael Lee have joined forces to launch a new state of the art Music Academy for all ages at Westcott Venture Park in Bucks.

This move follows on from the success of Duncan’s 'Dunx Drum School,' which was launched in September 2011 based at Westcott Venture Park. Over the last three years, Dunx Drum School built a loyal following of 110 students ranging in age from just three years up to adults.

Duncan has now teamed up with his brother Michael Lee to offer a wider range of music tuition and on a larger scale. Together the brothers have rebranded the business into XYZ Music Academy and expanded their operations, now occupying an additional building at the park.

An extensive refurbishment of both buildings has been carried out to include acoustic treatment and creation of staging area and the brothers have invested heavily in equipment including PA Systems, keyboards, guitars etc.

XYZ Music Academy now offers tuition in guitar and keyboards as well as drums and provides a band rehearsal room and both live and studio recording facilities. The Academy is set up to record bands, do live video shoots and even live gigs, as well as lessons and workshops.

Duncan says: “We now have state of the art equipment, the skills and the facilities to support our students to grow and develop musically. The XYZ Music Academy is designed to give learners the best possible start in the industry.”

“This move is proving popular with existing students, many of which have decided to learn another instrument or introduce their siblings to the Academy. The rehearsal room is also proving popular with bands as it is available seven days a week and has already been let to many artists including The Repeat Offenders who recently supported the Vamps at the Shepherds Bush Empire.”

“We now have the potential to train up to 500 students each week from our two onsite facilities which would see our business grow up to four times it's current size. Over the next three to four months we also intend to grow our online business providing subscription based packages to provide online tuition videos. We are also hoping to organise some master classes with top musicians in the gig room.”

If you are interested in enrolling your child in music lessons, or if you would like to learn yourself, XYZ Music Academy offers free taster sessions. For more information contact or call 07708 733288 or 01296 655129 or visit
