Vocal and Instrumental Tuition

Vocal and instrumental tuition is available through Cambridgeshire Music. We currently offer lessons in brass, woodwind, string instruments (including harp), piano, drum kit, guitar, singing and theory.  Details of charges and how to apply for tuition can be obtained directly from the Cambridgeshire Music website  If a student is entitled to pupil premium funding, we may be able to help with the cost of lessons and/or instrument hire.  Please contact our Finance Office (telephone 01223 568816 and select option 2 or email

Vocal and instrumental lessons take place in the music department practice rooms. Lessons are usually 20-30 minutes long.  Timetables are posted on the noticeboards outside the classrooms and emailed to parents.  Lessons are on a rotational basis so that the same subject lesson is not missed each week.   There are lockers available for students to store their instruments.

Students receiving tuition are often entered for the Associated Board, Trinity and Rock School examinations and are also encouraged to join the school extra-curricular ensembles and to perform in our termly recitals and concerts.
