Instrumental tuition is an option for pupils aged 6-19 (Year 2—13 at school/gap year students) and their parents. One-to-one specialist tuition in the following; violin, cello, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, flute, clarinet, recorder, saxophone, piano, percussion, drum kit, trumpet, cornet, trombone, french horn, tuba and singing.
When embarking on instrumental tuition pupils and parents need to commit to regular lesson attendance, the hire/purchase of a reasonable quality instrument and almost daily practice. Learning a musical instrument is an extremely rewarding experience, especially when progress is achieved at a good pace. With good support and reasonable interest levels most pupils will make satisfying progress.
Jot-a Note : Jasspa sells a practice notebook called Jot-a-note. It is deigned to organise communication between pupils, parents and teachers. It costs £5 and can be bought from reception. All instrumental pupils are expected to supply a notebook for their teacher to write in on a weekly basis, but it does not have to be a Jot-a-note.
Parents attend the first lessons of all young /beginner pupils to meet the teacher and where necessary receive advice on purchasing an instrument. In some instances teachers may suggest parents attending regularly in order to help establish a good practice routine/aid setting up of instrument.
Withdrawal from instrumental lessons requires a full term’s notice in writing. However all instrumental beginners are encouraged to complete a year’s worth of lessons in order to fairly assess interest levels / potential.
