I have nothing but praise for The Music Rooms, my son Brian is learning drums with Josh, he is a mentor aswell as a... music teacher for him, and always, always very approachable. If I have a question for either Josh or Alwyn, I will receive an honest reply. It is lovely for me at the moment to hear Brian taking his drum lesson via Skype with Josh, and to hear lots of praise where it is due and time spent working on a piece he is having difficulty with - fabulous.read more

We would highly recommend the music rooms in Antrim. Our son had been getting lessons with the music rooms in school... for guitar which he really enjoyed and we were worried he would miss out with the lockdown but they are now providing him with weekly FaceTime lessons. This is the highlight of his week. A special shout out to Nigel who has been a fantastic teacher for our very energetic 8 year old. He is extremely patient and really good at pitching the lessons to children to make them fun.read more

My daughter has been attending the music rooms for a year and a half not a day missed as she is loving every lesson, (I... thought she would have give up after a lesson or 2 as shes a little socially awkward) but her guitar teacher Kieran makes her feel so much at ease and her confidence has grown.aAdjusting to the skype lessons I thought was going to be tough for her .. nope shes loving it just as much.These guys go above and beyond and I couldn't recommend them more for any kid/adult wanting to learn a musical instrument or singing lessons.

The Music rooms recently installed a new PA system in Ballymena Congregational Church.From the initial consultation... with Rodney Beggs through to installation we found them professional, efficient and very easy to deal with. Their vast knowledge of sound systems etc was so helpful and made our decision that mush easier. The installation was completed to a very high standard with no mess or hassle.I cannot recommend The Music rooms enough to any other Church that are thinking of changes to their PA. Brilliant service at a competitive price.read more

I was in desperate need of PA hire for a primary school Christmas play, as not one but both speakers had gone down the... day before the event!I contacted Rodney at the Music Rooms about possibly hiring two tops at extremely short notice. Rodney, and the guys in the shop in Ballymena (Gerry & Nigel) couldn’t have been more helpful!I left with a powered mixer, two 15’’ tops, all the cables.... even lights!!The event was a massive success. Will most definitely be back but with hopefully more time to spare.Can’t thank them enough... top lads and great people to do business with 👍read more

Have just had our drums tuned after hearing that the Music Rooms offered this service. Rodney did a great job... —friendly and professional— and to top it off he was good enough to talk my daughter through the whole process, sharing a bunch of different tricks to make them sound better. This meant she learnt a lot more about her instrument at the same time. Much appreciated! Our drums are ancient (and still look it😂) but they now sound fantastic! Big thanks to Rodneyread more

I had my first guitar lessons with Rodney over the singer sewing machine shop in Wellington Street, since then I have... been absolutely amazed at the progress Rodney has made with the Music Rooms. I have been impressed with the number of groups especially those of young people that he has got together & brought to the standard that they can perform in public competently. Recently I had some mandolin lessons with Jonny O'Neill & again was delighted to see the number of happy young folk coming in for lessons in voice, drums, guitars & mandolin. Rodney has done wonders musically within Co Antrim & the future of the Music Rooms looks very bright & I wish them every success.read more
