Subsidise lessons with the school budget and parental payments.

How will the timetabling work?
There are various options that can be discussed with schools or parents. Some schools opt to keep the child’s lesson the same time every week, some school opt for a week A and B rotation so that the child is not missing out on the same lesson every week. Individual cases can also be discussed, for example when a child is falling behind in a certain lesson, the music lesson can be timetabled around this. We will search the child’s schedule to find the best possible time slot.
Who teaches the lessons?
All lessons are taugh by self-employed fully qualified music teachers. You can read more about our instructors on are website. We are likely to increase the amount of teachers if there is a high interest in lessons from students.
What is the starting age for instrumental lessons?
Year one is usually the starting age for learning a musical instruments such as the piano or recorder. Younger students can benefit from lessons but each child will be individually assessed to see if they can concentrate and comprehend the lesson.
