At Britannica School we are able to offer a stimulating extra curriculum provision in music.

The opportunity to learn an instrument at school can be great fun, a great way to develop the mind and co-ordination, inspire creativity and is scientifically proven to be academically enhancing.

We have a team of selected visiting instrumental teachers who are recommended as tutors and they teach individually, one-to-one lessons. Within Britannica's instrumental programme, there are chances to perform at the end of term student concerts or take one of the British music examinations, from the ABRSM or Trinity Rockschool.

What can we offer?

Any pupils of the school, from Year 2 upwards, can sign up for a thirty-minute individual lesson on an instrument of their choice. At the moment, we have teachers for drums, guitar, piano, saxophone, violin, voice, and music theory. We can also arrange for other instrumental teachers to visit as well, depending on demand.

When do these instrumental lessons happen?

Generally for pupils in the primary school, this will happen during the afternoon sessions and after school. For secondary pupils these lessons will be only scheduled after school.

Getting an instrument to practise on?

The school is unable to provide instruments for pupils to practise on, but together with the advice of the instrumental teacher we can provide help in finding a suitable instrument.
