Music Lessons

First Access Ukulele Lessons, Year 5

All children in Year 5 take part in group ukulele lessons, led by an external teacher and supported by our in-school music teacher, Mrs Tinkler. These lessons are free to all Year 5 children. It is hoped that, by giving all pupils access to music lessons and music making together, they can make an informed choice as to whether this is something they might like to pursue further.


Group Recorder Lessons, Year 3

Children in Year 3 can opt to take part in group recorder lessons on a weekly basis with Mrs Sutton-Muldoon. Lessons take place at the same time each week.


How to register for recorder lessons

Interest should be registered via the school office. Payment is made via School Gateway and parents will need to provide an instrument and the relevant book for their child. Half a term's notice is required to stop lessons.


Instrument tuition (Clarinet, Flute or Saxophone), Years 4-6

We have a small number of spaces available for clarinet, flute or saxophone lessons, with Mrs Sutton-Muldoon for children in years 4, 5 and 6.

Lessons take place on the same day each week.  We try to vary the lesson times in order to avoid children missing the same things every week, but this is not always possible.

Parents will need to provide an instrument and the relevant book for their child.


How to register for woodwind lessons, Years 4-6

Lessons are booked and paid for through Herts Music Service directly. Parents wishing to sign up their children for a lesson should visit the website and specify their preference for instrument and lesson type (eg individual or shared/group lesson) and instrument (clarinet, flute or saxophone).

You can also find a quick link to the full Terms and Conditions (please note you will be signing up for the 'direct-billed' option).  

Herts Music Service will add the child's name to their list and contact parents when a lesson space becomes available.


Assistance with fees

Hertfordshire Music Service does provide a Remission of Fees Scheme to enable those children in receipt of Free School Meals and other benefits to access the use of musical instruments and the tuition provided.   More information is available on their website or alternatively please contact the school office who will try to assist.
