The Music Department can offer students weekly 20 minute instrumental music lessons. The lessons take place during the school day in small groups or on a one-to-one basis. The lessons are timetabled on a rota to avoid students missing the same core curriculum subject more than once per half term, so for example you would only ever be taken out of one Maths lesson in a half term period.

The enrichment opportunity will complement the Music curriculum and allow you to develop your skills on one of the following instruments:

  • Guitar (including Electric, Acoustic and Bass)
  • Drum kit
  • Woodwind (including Clarinet, Saxophone and Flute)

Please note that for a student to get the most from their lessons they will be asked to practice in their own time, this means that students should have access to an instrument at home, if you do not currently have an instrument please contact the Music department so they can advise further.

Instrumental lessons will begin on the first week of the summer term (week commencing 17 April) and will run until the end of the academic year. Students will receive 13 lessons in total.

Instrumental music lessons are priced at £4.70 for group lessons and £9.50 for on-to-one lessons per week. Payment is to be made in advance of the summer term via WisePay. Payment must be received by Friday 14th April to secure your child a place in the instrumental music lesson programme. Payment plans are available if you wish to pay in instalments.
