In school we are pleased to be working with Shropshire Music Service to offer small group and individual lessons for violin, brass, drums, piano/keyboard, guitar, recorder, flute and singing. Most instruments can be started from Year 2/3, with the exception of flute which is recommended from Year 4.
Shropshire Music Service are a non-profit council organisation dedicated to providing high quality music education for the county's young people. The lessons are not free, but substantial reductions in the cost are available for those in challenging financial circumstances. Shropshire Music Service are committed to supporting students and families on low incomes. Those receiving free school meals or are claiming income support or child tax credits, providing they are not entitled to working tax credits and have an annual family income less than £16,190 are entitled to a maximum remission of £45.00 per term. Those claiming Working Tax Credits will receive a maximum remission of £22.50 per term (only applies to one set of instrumental lessons). Tuition costs for the first instrument for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium are covered by the school.
SMS also offer affordable instrument hire for most instruments, along with opportunities to perform in musical groups. You can enrol your children using this link, or search Shropshire Music Service to find out more.
