Find A StoreInstruments


uLearn Music recommend the following instruments. All uLearn Music and Lynbrook School of Music students are eligible for a discount from our local instrument store.

Please only buy instruments from a reputable music store. Purchasing an instrument from a supermarket chain will not be suitable for learning on and may require you to purchase another instrument only a few months down the track as the student advances.


Featured Instruments

Yamaha PSR E363

The Yamaha PSR E363 is a great student keyboard which is touch responsive. This is the minimum starting point for keyboard / piano students. You can also consider the higher models for more sounds and features.

Yamaha NP12

An alternative to the keyboard above, the Yamaha NP12 is also a student keyboard which is touch responsive. It doesn’t have some of the additional sounds of the above model. If you are after a keyboard without the distractions this is for you.

Valencia Classical Guitar

The Valencia student classical guitars are a great starting point for younger students. The nylon strings don’t hurt the fingers as much as an acoustic guitar when practicing.
1/2 Size – Small
3/4 Size – Medium
4/4 Size – Full size

Fender Squier Vintage Bass Short Scale

The Fender Squier Vintage Bass Short Scale is ideal for younger students or smaller students that might struggle to reach the frets on a traditional Bass Guitar. This ‘Short Scale’ bass is a great solution. Currently discontinued, however there are still some second hand ones around.
