Learning to play a musical instrument offers numerous benefits that extend far beyond music itself.
It enhances cognitive abilities, improving memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills.
Learning an instrument also fosters discipline, perseverance, and time management, as consistent practice is essential for progress. Moreover, it boosts creativity, emotional expression, and self-confidence, providing a positive outlet for stress and anxiety. Mastering an instrument builds a sense of achievement and accomplishment, instilling a lifelong appreciation for the art of music and enriching one's overall well-being.
We offer individual music lessons for a wide range of instruments within the School Day to pupils who wish to broaden their musical talents.
|Music Lesson Offerings
Lessons for pupils in Years 3 to 10 are taught during the school day and last for 40 minutes. Many instruments come in a range of sizes to make them accessible for very young children, and our Music Department is happy to offer individual advice on when it is best for a pupil to start learning their chosen instrument.
The School also offer the possibility of hiring instruments which allow pupils to try different instruments, without an initial financial commitment.
Many of our pupils who learn an instrument become very confident members of our community and go on to perform in the many concerts, events and performances the School hosts. They build friendships and learn skills that are transferable to other areas of School life.
