Specialist Music Classes in 2019

Our school offers specialist music lessons in flute, clarinet,vocals, saxophone, drum, guitar, bass guitar and keyboard. These lessons are highly sought after! Lessons are often over-subscribed and places fill very quickly.

If you would like your child to take part in these lessons, please click the hyperlinks below (for each instrument) or if you have received a hardcopy of this letter please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for the links to register.  We will confirm our ability to offer lessons to your child by the end of Week 1 in 2019, and payment in advance for Term 1 will need to be made immediately on acceptance of the lessons in order to keep the space. We are also happy to accept a payment schedule on request.

Returning students must re-enroll and complete these forms - we do not automatically re-enroll as we do not know if your child wants to continue, will be coming back to MBAS etc. etc.

As the lessons are so highly sought after, it is essential that your child’s fees are paid termly in advance, or that you arrange regular payments in order to pay it off by the end of the year. Additionally, if a student misses too many lessons without explanation, their place will be offered to another student. It is the student’s responsibility to get themselves to their lessons on time. Our teachers do their best to remind students, but ultimately it is their responsibility.

Please note, students in Years 3-6 are only allowed to do one instrument. Students Year 7 and above may do more than one instrument after consultation with the tutors.
