Starting lessons

Talk to your school about the music tuition available and make your request to your school’s Headteacher, Head of Music or Music Coordinator.

Your child can have a taster session, meet the tutor and try out an instrument. After the taster session, you can agree a start date for lessons with the school.

Most children start having lessons in September.

Music lessons are usually taught in the pupil’s school during normal school hours. Secondary schools usually organise a rota system so that pupils don’t miss the same subject lesson each week.

Pupils are taught in small groups, pairs or individually depending on the instrument. Often pupils of a similar standard are grouped together.
