Music Lessons

Would you like your child to learn to play a musical instrument?


Children who are in Year 2 and older can receive instrumental lessons at school. We can offer children the opportunity to learn to play the piano, drums, guitar, violin, cello, trumpet and trombone. 



We are offering a block of 11 lessons, starting in the final week of September and running through the Autumn term. Children will be taught individually for 20 minutes per week. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to offer group lessons this term. The total cost for the term will be £156.  If a family is entitled to receive free school meals, we can subsidise this cost. Please speak to the office for more information.


If a child is learning to play the violin, cello, guitar or a brass instrument, they will need to bring their own instrument along to lessons. Instruments can be hired from Waltham Forest Music Service. The music tutors will provide the forms and information when your child begins their lessons. For children learning the piano or drums, the school instrument used will be cleaned between each lesson.


If you would like your child to receive instrumental tuition, please make payment for the lessons using Arbor or email the office for further information. You will be able to select which instrument you would like your child to learn at the point of payment.


Please understand that lessons missed due to a child's absence from school cannot be refunded. You will be able to decide whether or not to continue with your child’s lessons at the start of each new term.


If you have any questions regarding these lessons, please do get in touch by emailing
