Benefits - Music tuition
We offer instrumental tuition in many schools in strings, percussion, woodwind, brass, piping or guitar.
Unfortunately not all schools can be offered comprehensive access to all these instrumental disciplines. Vacancies are mainly filled at the beginning of the school year, or at other times where spaces develop.
The cost for music tuition is £21.40 a month or £256.80 per year.
