Taking Part In Lessons

Lessons take place once a week during term time. Your lesson will be on the same day and at the same time every week unless you are at high school where sometimes they are on a rota.

You may need to leave a classroom lesson to take part in your music lesson, or you might come during break time or lunch. After school lessons are a possibility if school can facilitate this. Lesson days and times depend on Music Leader timetables/teaching hours and availability of teaching space in school.

You'll need to have an instrument with you for the lesson so you'll need to bring this to school with you on the day of your lesson. If you're learning drums or piano there will be one in school for you to use. You then take your instrument home after your lesson so that you can practice during the week.

Lessons will take place every week until you inform us otherwise.

Cost

The cost of your lesson depends on the type of lesson you have.

Group Lessons (30 minutes for 3 to 6 pupils) - £6 per lesson
20 Minute Paired - £7 per lesson
30 Minute Paired - £10.50 per lesson
20 Minute Individual - £14 per lesson
30 Minute Individual - £19.50 per lesson

Group lessons will only be set up if there are 3 or more pupils taking part. If you'd like a paired lesson there is the option on the application form to state who you would like to share the lesson with. Please note that the cost for paired lessons is per child.

Currently we do not have a remissions policy or sibling discount.

Children Looked After can access music lessons at no cost by referral through the Virtual Schools.

How To Apply

If a young person would like face to face lessons in school you can sign up here.. Select your school and the instrument you'd like to learn.

You can add an instrument hire application too.

We'll need some details about the pupil and the payer so that we can offer you lessons. You will need to provide us with an email address that you check regularly.

Once you've applied you'll be sent your log in details for a website called Speed Admin. This shows you your bookings, pupil attendance, messages from/to your teachers and also gives you access to study materials that will be used to support your lessons.

You'll be added to our waiting list and a member of our admin team will be in touch to arrange your lessons.

You'll receive a confirmation email with an invoice for lessons until the end of that term.

Payment Methods

You can make payment by card, bank transfer or by direct debit. Please note that a charge of 2.5% will be made to all payments made by direct debit.

If payment isn't made for lessons by the invoice due date then lessons will be postponed until payment is made in full. In some circumstances we may allow lessons to continue subject to an agreed payment plan.

Cancellations

You will be invoiced for lessons from your start date until the end of the term. No refunds will be given for pupils absences including school trips.

We make every effort to encourage good attendance. If a pupil is absent for a session this will be noted on our system and you will receive an email notification.

If your Music Leader is absent for any reason the lesson a credit will be raised accordingly.
