Individual Lessons

The Instrumental Studies Program comprises individual lessons held weekly and conducted by visiting specialist instrumental tutors. The Music Academy Administrator and Head of Junior School Music arrange instrumental lessons and allocate teaching studios. The specific scheduling of lessons is made between the Instrumental Studies Tutors, the student and their parents/caregivers. Instrumental Studies lesson operate on a rotating timetable so that students miss a different academic class lesson each week.
