With the exception of guitar and drum lesson, children receive 30 lessons spread evenly over the school year, each lesson is 20 minutes long and they are guaranteed a 1:1 lesson. The cost is £10 per lesson which is payable termly in advance at £100 term. Half a term's notice is required in writing to cancel lessons.  Those children wishing to learn the guitar will be taught in small groups of a similar level.

Parents are required to provide their child with an instrument and a book – but these should not be purchased in advance – each teacher will offer advice on the right size of instrument and has their own preferences for books which they communicate to parents once they have met each pupil. It is of course vital that children practise at home for any improvement to be made, as a guide - 10-15 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

If your child would like to learn an instrument please contact them directly.
