Individual Music Intrument Lessons

The Music department at Saffron Walden County High School offers individual lessons for the following instruments, subject to availability:

Violin Trumpet/Cornet Saxophone Piano Viola French Horn Clarinet Keyboard Cello Trombone Flute Voice Double Bass Tuba Bassoon Drums Guitar – Electric/Classical E Flat Horn.

The lessons are taught by visiting music teachers, who are self-employed and it is with them who you will have a private contract and be invoiced by.  Students who receive instrumental lessons will be expected to take part in one or more of the school’s ensembles. The Music department reserves the right to cancel lessons if this is consistently ignored.

One of the most important ongoing aims at Saffron Walden County High School is to provide our students with a range of varied personal development opportunities that encourage and motivate them to attain their personal best. It is our belief that, if a student enjoys school and they are appropriately supported in this journey, then they will often flourish and develop learning skills, habits and attitudes that are necessary to successfully and effectively face challenges in the future. Therefore, if your child is in receipt of a Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) then there may be some funding options available.
