Information for Students

We appreciate that for new students arriving in September, it can be difficult to work out how music lessons work at the school. We have put together a short student guide with step-by-step instructions of how to get started with music lessons. It might be something that students download to their phone for the first couple of weeks of term so they are able to reference it, or printed copies can be requested from the music office. If students have any questions about music lessons, they can speak to any of the music staff and we will be happy to help.

Stopping Music Lessons

Whilst we are keen to promote the benefits of continuing music lessons, we do appreciate that there are a few occasions when requesting an end to instrumental lessons is required. If the reason is due to financial difficulties or there are any aspects of the instrumental lessons you would like to discuss, speaking to either the finance department or Mr Willey first can often be the best first step. We can then discuss any further options that might be available to you.

To request to stop instrumental lessons, please email Mrs Dawson at and we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.
