Music at Goat Lees Primary School

We are a VERY musical school! In addition to whole class music, we introduced peripatetic music teaching last year. The cost of a teacher is £26 p/hr. Children are taught in pairs and pay £5 per half an hour. The school is currently topping up the remaining amount. As we have made these as affordable as we possibly can, this has meant that many children have been able to access our music lessons. Last year, 49 children had music lessons. This was 34% of our school. We are very proud of this! We anticipate that this number will increase as more instruments are offered. Last year, we offered lessons in Piano, Drums, Violin and Trumpet. This will continue in 2015-2016 and we will be looking to see if we can offer some different instruments.

If you have any queries please see Mrs Jones who will be based in our stunning new performing arts room - what an inspiring place to learn to play an instrument!

Just a few notes:

  • If your child is borrowing an instrument from the school they will be given their instrument soon after commencing lessons. If your child is using their own instrument please make sure they bring it in on the correct day.
  • Your child will also receive a school music diary so you can help them practice at home and keep track of how they are progressing.
  • When committing to instrumental lessons, parents are asked to sign an agreement with the school. This is available on request. The agreement outlines the schools Policy on instrumental lessons at school.
  • Payment for lessonsshould be handed to reception each week or at the beginning of term, if paying for the whole term in advance. Eachlesson will cost £5 per child and will be taught in pairs.
