Peripatetic Music Lessons 

If you would like your child to receive instrumental/vocal lessons in school, we offer lessons in the following instruments: Bass Guitar, Guitar, Singing, Drums, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Recorder, Oboe, Bassoon, Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, Trumpet, Trombone, Cornet, French Horn, Tenor Horn, Euphonium, Tuba, Piano and Jazz Piano.

Lessons are subsidised by the school and are £90.20 a term for eleven 20 minute individual lessons. Lessons are free for children eligible for pupil premium

Once your child is allocated a place you will receive an invoice, in advance for the term. Lessons are delivered during term time on a rotational basis and take place during the hours of a normal school day.

Priority is given to students who are already taking lessons and wish to continue. After this, new applicants are allocated lessons on a first come first served basis. Any pupils who cannot be timetabled for lessons will immediately be placed on a waiting list.

If you need to hire an instrument, Norfolk Music Service may be able to provide your child with one free of charge, subject to availability. You will however be responsible for the maintenance of the instrument.

To apply please click and complete the online google form by Friday 2nd July 2021.  Please also refer to the school's Peripatetic Music Instrument Policy.
