In addition to our Whole Class Musicianship opportunities, we are delighted to be able to offer children in years 3 – 6 instrumental lessons at Swanbourne CE School. These take place during the school day and are a valuable addition to your child's education.
Lessons are offered in:

Violin, viola, cello; Mrs Lorna Morton – Nearly 20 years teaching experience, including Aylesbury Music Service. Contact via 07510 299 617 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Following a student's request, we are also offering French Horn this year, which can be booked via the Bucks Music Trust at https://www.bucksmusic.org/book-lessons-2/
Children receive 30 lessons spread evenly over the school year, each lesson is 20 minutes long and they are guaranteed a 1:1 lesson.
The cost is around £10 per lesson which is payable termly in advance. Half a term's notice is required in writing to cancel lessons.
Parents are required to provide their child with an instrument and a book – but these should not be purchased in advance – each teacher will offer advice on the right size of instrument and has their own preferences for books which they communicate to parents once they have met each pupil. It is of course vital that children practise at home for any improvement to be made, as a guide - 10-15 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
If your child would like to learn an instrument, please contact them directly.
