Music Lessons

Instrumental and Vocal Tuition Scheme

Instrumental and vocal lessons are provided at schools and colleges in Brighton & Hove and at our music centres. 

Following a move to online tuition in response to the Covid19 pandemic, we are very pleased to be returning to face-to-face tuition in the majority of schools during the autumn term. We are also putting plans in place to make sure that all tuition could be continued online in the event of a future lockdown or temporary school closures.


The Lessons

  • Lessons in small groups in the early stages of learning

  • Lessons of 30 minutes duration usually during the school day by arrangement with schools

  • Pupils are offered 30 lessons across the academic year

  • All pupils receive an introductory course of 10 lessons at the end of which a progress report is written


Applying For Lessons

Pupils may apply for tuition at any time if they know which instrument they wish to learn. Our Get into Music recruitment programme also provides opportunities for pupils to see which instruments are available to learn in their schools. We aim to start lessons as soon as possible subject to a minimum number of applications being received for the same instrument. Which Instruments Can I Learn?


Please read the Tuition Agreement before applying. Applications can be Completed Online.


What Happens Next?

  • Places are allocated on receipt of application

  • Your child’s instrumental teacher will contact you to confirm the day and time of the first lesson

  • When you have received confirmation of the start date, arrangements will need to be made to obtain an instrument in readiness for the first lesson

  • If places are over subscribed or insufficient applications have been received your child will be placed on a waiting list. Waiting lists are regularly monitored with the aim of starting tuition as soon as possible


Advanced Tuition Scheme

The Advanced Tuition Scheme enables Gifted and Talented pupils to receive individual tuition. This is suitable for pupils who are of approximately Grade V standard or equivalent. If a teacher feels that a pupil would benefit from individual tuition before reaching this standard it may be possible to receive tuition on the Advanced Scheme at an earlier stage.
