Welcome to St Peter's Music Page
Music has been proven to have a huge impact on a child’s learning, well-being and social engagement. The role of music is more important now, during a global crisis, than ever. Therefore, at St Peter’s we have continued to teach music in a safe way to maintain a positive learning environment.
There is a wide variety of instrumental tuition available at St Peter's, which we are keen to get up and running for the children in the Spring term.
The tuition on offer is:
KS1 (Years 1 to 2): Ukulele, Vocals, Electric Guitar, Upper Strings
KS2 (Year 3 to 6): Brass, Upper Strings, Guitar - Acoustic, Electric and Bass, Piano, Ukulele, Woodwind and Vocals.
The cost will vary from £4.50 up to £18.00, per lesson, depending on what tuition you choose. There will be a rental charge from RAD for the instruments if you would like your child to bring them home to practice.
Drums will still be continuing with Richard Denniston and a school invoice will be sent out to parents for this service as before. Please inform the Junior Office should you with your child to receive drumming lessons. These lessons will be £7.50 per week.
Totally RAD Music will be sending out a letter to all parents, for Year 1 up to Year 6 which will include tuition and the payment options. If you are interested, please return the letter with your child's requirements.
