Instrumental Lessons and Charges

Bishop Perowne has a tradition of generous music provision and excellent achievement. The School is supported by a team of excellent peripatetic instrumental teachers from Severn Arts (formerly known as Worcestershire Youth Music). Students are invited to join a full programme of instrumental / vocal lessons.  No previous experience is necessary, although we do look forward to helping students who already play to make further progress. We hope these students will contribute to the wide variety of groups available at the School. 

Instruments Taught

Strings Woodwind Brass Percussion Keyboard Guitar Voice
Violin Flute Trumpet Drum Kit Piano Acoustic All Styles
Cello Oboe Cornet   Keyboard Electric  
  Clarinet Tenor Horn     Bass  
  Bassoon Euphonium        
  Saxaphone Baritone        
    French Horn        
    Trombone        

Students will need their own instruments to practice. Once students are of a suitable standard, they will be expected to play or sing in the school bands and choirs.

Students may, if they wish, be entered for either ABRSM, Trinity and Guildhall practical and theory examinations. ​

The cost of music lessons from September 2017 will be:
Autumn Term:
£225.00 per term for 12 half hour individual lessons.
£150.00 per term for 12 twenty minute individual lessons.
£75.00 per term for 12 twenty minute shared lessons.

Spring Term:
£225.00 per term for 12 half hour individual lessons.
£150.00 per term for 12 twenty minute individual lessons.
£75.00 per term for 12 twenty minute shared lessons.

Summer Term:
£187.50 per term for 10 half hour individual lessons.
£125.00 per term for 10 twenty minute individual lessons.
£62.50 per term for 10 twenty minute shared lessons.

Charges are reviewed annually. In order to avoid students missing too much of any one timetabled school lesson, instrumental lesson times are usually changed each week whenever possible. Students are expected to mention to the teacher at the start of each school lesson that they will need to be excused in order to attend a music lesson. Some lessons are held after school, during lunch breaks or mid-morning breaks. Lesson times are always displayed on the notice board outside the Music Studio, and parents/carers should encourage students to check there regularly for the times of their lesson.  Instrumental Lesson Timetables are also available from the Students' section of the website, but there may a slight lag in the changes being made available.

 One term's notice is required to discontinue lessons, otherwise a term's fee will be charged in lieu.

Instrument Hire

Severn Arts offers the option to hire instruments to all students taking lessons through the service, with hire fees charged directly to the parent. Parents can apply for instrument hire via the Servern Arts website and instruments will be delivered to school once payment has been received
