Ormiston Six Villages Academy is pleased to offer instrumental lessons on a variety of instruments. Playing a musical instrument can bring a lifetime of enjoyment and many of our students learn so that they can play in a group, band or orchestra with others; indeed, we see a benefit across the curriculum to students who receive lessons.
To complement the academy Year 7 music programme, instrumental tuition is also available on Electric & Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drum Kit, Keyboard and Piano. Piano is only available as a Masterclass lesson and places are limited.
Group lessons are taken by teachers who come in one day per week. The students are timetabled at different times each week so that they do not miss the same lesson. Students showing particular aptitude for their chosen instrument may be considered for Masterclass lessons—individual lessons of 30 minutes duration. An offer for individual lessons will be agreed between Mr Munt and the individual instrumental tutors and will be based on current progress and attitude to private practice outside lessons. Parents will be notified of this offer and associated tuition fees in advance.
If your child is interested in receiving instrumental lessons and/or participating in some or all of the extra-curricular activities available, please complete the form below. Our Finance department will issue an invoice on ParentPay for your child's chosen instrument.
