Music has a strong profile at Montpelier Primary School.
A choir, drumming and weekly singing are a regular feature, alongside individual and group tuition for the cello, violin, piano, guitar, clarinet, flute.
Currently 116 children have access to weekly music tuition in flute, clarinet, guitar, violin, piano, cello and keyboard. Our children show high levels of interest and enthusiasm and we have opportunities to enjoy their progress during different events.
It would be fair to say that the administration team works very hard to enable the provision of lessons to run as smoothly as possible. Our greatest challenges have been around unexpected cancellations and late or non-payment for lessons. Consequently, there has been a financial shortfall that has had to be met by the school.
Music going forward.
We must ensure this unique level of provision can be sustained and therefore we have adopted the following arrangements.
- For those currently taking lessons, payments must be made in advance.
- Payment is non-refundable if a child chooses to give up an instrument or leaves the school (the tutors and lessons will already have been booked).
- Late payment may result in your child’s place being cancelled.
- A FULL term’s notice is required if your child chooses to stop taking lessons.
If your child wishes to take up an instrument please email: firstname.lastname@example.org with the instrument name and their name in the subject header. Please note that lessons are only open to children in Y2 – Y6 and waiting lists are only open to children in these years.
