LEARN TO PLAY OR SING

Picking up an instrument for the first time can be a magical moment

FOR: Primary and Secondary level students.
COST: £6.25 - Group session (2 x students over 20 minutes or 3 x students over 30 minutes), £12.50 - 20 min individual session, £18.75 - 30 min individual session.

There are huge benefits to learning a musical instrument, or learning to sing. We are here to help you every step of the way. We offer individual or group lessons, lend instruments and provide bursaries.

From September 2021, Cambridgeshire Music will be launching a first term learning incentive offering a 20% reduction off our standard tuition rate of £37.50 per hour for all new starters. For example, a 20 minute individual session with reduction works out at £10 per session. This offer is not available to students already in receipt of tuition. This incentive is one of many provisions made possible by Cambridgeshire Music, supported by Arts Council England funding.

Learning how to play an instrument or sing helps to improve core skills such as memory, co-ordination, motivation, confidence, discipline, creativity and imagination .

If you would like to find out more about this incentive, email: cm@cambridgeshire.gov.uk

Our offer

We offer music lessons in groups or for individual pupils. Lessons are usually 20 or 30 minutes long and given weekly in term time. You can take lessons at school, at home or at one of our centres, during and beyond the school day. Our progressive learning approach includes regular monitoring and access to qualification routes if desired. Our qualified and experienced tutors are fully vetted, with all appropriate disclosure and barring checks (DBS). Tutors will support student progress and help to achieve your very best.

We also offer additional services and guidance to help with the learning process, such as bands and ensembles you can join, projects and events to take part in, and advice and guidance on choosing and obtaining the right instrument.

We are a fully accountable service and we welcome feedback. We make sure it is easy for you to communicate with your tutors, and to ask our management team questions.

There are two options for requesting lessons: families can set up a booking request direct online (see 'Request a lesson' on this page). You can book as many lessons as you wish at a time, including one-off 'taster' session. Once we have received your request, we will allocate to you a tutor for your lesson and an automatic confirmation will be sent via email. Once confirmed, payment is then required so that sessions may begin. If it is not possible to provide a tutor, your booking will then be added onto our waiting list. Due to the popularity of certain instruments, please contact us if you have not heard back within a term.

You provide

We ask parents/carers and schools to provide a suitable space and encourage students to practice in-between sessions.

Costs and Financial Support

Schools can usually provide some financial support for looked-after children or those who are eligible for Free School Meals. Please check with them if you are eligible.
