Learning An Instrument

All children from year 1 and above have the opportunity to sign up for one to one instrumental music lessons. We pride ourselves in having excellent working professionals teaching the children of Hurlingham in all instruments across the orchestral spectrum and beyond. Lessons are generally for 30 minutes per week and pupils have many opportunities to perform in spotlight concerts throughout the year. Our specialist instrument teachers lead various ensembles in Woodwind, Brass, Strings and a large ensemble meets on Saturday mornings for years 3-6 (occasionally year 2 pupils join if a little more advanced).

The following instruments can be studied:

Violin, Viola, Cello, Trumpet, Cornet, Euphonium, Trombone, French Horn,  Fife, Flute, Recorder, Clarinet, Saxophone, Piano, Drums, Acoustic & Electric Guitar Bass guitar, Ukulele & Voice.

We also run a number of music ensembles through the MADD (Music, arts, dance and drama) extra curricular provision and pupils are given the option of which groups they would like to attend whether that be Band, Ukulele, Recorder or the Dood, Toots and JSax group (a modern take on a clarinet, flute or saxophone). All of these run at a beginner and above level except for Band, which requires some experience, although it is a drums, guitars and keyboards group rather than a more traditional ‘Band’.

Once a week, all children will have a general music lesson for 30 minutes with their class and a singing practice with their section of the school. This is in addition to our four wonderful choirs, including the Chamber Choir which is a selective ensemble for children in years 5 & 6.

One full term’s notice for all music lessons must be give in writing directly to the music teacher.
