First of all, we are really committed to the principle that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to play, no matter what their financial position. Therefore we have a fund & loan instruments to help children from low-income backgrounds. Please don’t be put off if things are tight – come and talk to us first.

Individual tuition:

These fees are paid direct to your teacher. You can expect to pay somewhere between £24 and £35 per hour – the exact amount depends upon your teacher’s experience level and qualifications. The recommended hourly rates for EYS teachers are:

Student teachers with less than a year of one-to-one teaching experience: £18-22

Teachers with between one and five years of one-to-one teaching experience: £22-26

Teachers with over five years of teaching experience: £24-28

Teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience: £26 – 32

Our student teachers are all CRB checked and have a minimum of grade 8 on the relevant instrument before they start teaching. In addition we have a very active staff development programme in which all teachers take part.

Musicianship and Chamber groups: the fees are for the whole term and are due one week before the first session of each term:

Mini Music Makers and all chamber groups: 

£55 per term (£135 for the year paid in advance)

Theory: £50 per term

NB If you decide not to continue we do need to be given at least three weeks notice of your cancellation before the first rehearsal of each term.  A £20 fee will be charged for late cancellation. No refund is given for stopping part way through a term.
