Instrumental Tuition at Michael Hall
The school currently offers pupils of Class 5 and upwards the opportunity to learn the following instruments on a lesson rotation system in school time:
If your child is in Class 2 - 4 and is interested in learning an instrument, in school please read through the details and Terms and Conditions of Instrumental Tuition and complete an application form that can be collected from Reception or downloaded from our website.
If you have a child who is interested in learning an instrument in school, please read through the details and Terms and Conditions of Instrumental Tuition and complete an Application Form (hard copies available from reception).
We will do our best to provide lessons as soon as possible after receiving your application form. But please note that lessons are subject to demand, and if demand is too great for a teacher to accept all pupils to start at any one time, then pupils will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, following receipt of the registration form, and others will be put on a waiting list.
Instrumental lessons are given on a one-to-one basis once a week during term time. All lessons are 40 minutes long.
Instrumental teachers include aural training up to Grade 5 standard for pupils taking exams, and yearly progress reports will be given for each pupil.
The rotation system
All pupils of Class 5 and above wishing to learn an instrument at school are placed on the rotation system which operates from lesson 3 (9:40am) through to the end of lesson 9 (4:00pm) and includes lunchtime ( the length of the rotation does vaery slightly depending on the number of pupils). Pupils have a fixed day for their lesson, but the time of the lesson changes every week to prevent pupils from missing the same lesson repeatedly.
Term times and dates
The number of lessons offered in a term will vary depending on the length of the term – this is reflected in the billing. The number of lessons offered in a term will always be one shorter than the actual length of the term to allow for a ‘catch-up’ lesson in the event that the instrumental teacher is absent.
Tuition fees vary depending on which teacher your child is learning with – details of prices are available from the Music Department. Parents will be invoiced termly by the school and payments will be taken in monthly instalments by direct debit along with school fees.
