How Do I Setup Lessons?

If you are a parent interested in your child having lessons within school, please contact your school's Head of Music/Music Co-ordinator and they will be able to assist you. If you are a school interested in arranging lessons for pupils then before contacting Accredited Teachers, please consider the following:

  • Which instrumental lessons you would like to offer pupils in your school?


  • Do you have enough interest for a tutor to come into school? We would suggest a minimum tuition period of 1 hour to attract a tutor to come into school.  This could be 3 x 20 minute individual/shared lessons or 2 x 30 minute individual/shared lessons. Some tutors will come to school for less time if they are already teaching in a neighbouring school and do not have too far to travel.


  • If you don’t have enough interest at present, could you ask the tutor to come into school to provide a demonstration to a class or in an assembly to increase awareness/interest?  Or, you could ask if they would offer a free taster session to a group of pupils?


  • Once you know how many pupils are interested in lessons you should:


  • Send a generic email to all relevant instrumental tutors to see who would be willing/able to teach at your school


  • Decide which tutor you would like based on the responses they receive


  • Decide with the tutor what day/time they will visit your school along with a start date


  • Liaise with the tutor regarding who will give copies of the Accredited Teacher’s contract to parents


  • Assist parents in contacting the tutor directly. The tutor will also invoice parents directly

If you have any difficulty appointing a tutor, please contact us:
