What our service users are saying

I learnt the strings

From the very first day, the guitar became my buddy. My tutor helped me set it up then she and I scheduled regular classes. There was something unique about her style of teaching. She was patient and made learning fun and easy for me. Her regular feedback was what made me improve and get better.

I really appreciate my tutor and would recommend her to anyone who is a beginner or wants to improve on their skills.


Music Lessons

It is a great opportunity; don’t miss it!

I would encourage you to enrol at the LADC Art School. It will be a very valuable experience.

You will learn the classic skill of oil painting, as well as other skills of observation, imagination, planning, control which you can apply anywhere.

Another bonus is you’ll be acquiring training which people pay thousands of pounds for at approximately no cost at all.


Art School

I understand what coding is really about

The coding class was very inspirational. It made me to code more than I used to. We were able to play games that made coding easier and fun.

The coding class was awesome and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn & understand coding. I am really looking forward to the next coding class.
