Instrumental Tuition

Dear Parent/Carer

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the Our Lady of Lourdes Music Service.  Over the past 11 years we have delivered instrumental and whole class music lessons to over 6,500 students ranging from years 3-13.  As a trust, music plays a huge part in our everyday life across our Academy supporting masses, primary concerts, secondary events, musicals, music tours and a celebratory multi academy concert each year.

We offer weekly shared and single instrumental lessons throughout the academic year, rotating or set around student timetables so the same lessons are not missed each week.  We are also able to accommodate 30-minute lessons by prior arrangement, either before, during breaks and after school.  We have a host of dynamic, inspiring teachers who can adapt to your child’s learning to enable them to join our extensive range of ensembles and clubs from rock bands to orchestras, choirs and big bands each week as they progress through their musical journey.

All music payments across our trust schools will need to be made through the new Our Lady of Lourdes Music Service website which can be found here.

The closing date for a guaranteed September start for existing and new pupils is the end of June.

As a non-profit academy trust, our lesson prices are always highly competitive, and fees are paid termly or half-termly online. Instrument hire is available for a small fee per term.

Our music service continues to have dedicated teachers and musicians who are flexible, caring, and adaptive to your child’s musical needs.

In addition to small group lessons, every child has the chance to join our extracurricular ensembles and clubs, such as rock bands, orchestras, choirs, chamber orchestras, ceili bands and big bands, at no extra cost.

If your child is in receipt of free school meals or pupil premium and would like music lessons, please contact us
