Peripatetic Music Tuition
Our school can facilitate the specific tuition of a musical instrument in separate, in school lessons, by visiting peripatetic teachers. These lessons are optional and are paid for parents. Lessons can be organised and taught by Hampshire Music Service or if a child wishes to learn more contemporary music, we can organise lessons with Rocksteady. They teach children guitar, drums and keyboards for the purpose of playing in a band. More information on these lessons can be obtained from the school office. All lessons must be paid for in advance.
