Fees for lessons and music groups

Free or low cost lessons

Learning a musical instrument can be costly but there are ways to get help.

Contact your school to find out about free whole-class instrumental teaching.

Ask your school if ‘Pathways’ lessons are available. These are low cost lessons taught in larger groups. Fees normally range from £2 to £4 per lesson. Some schools provide these lessons free of charge to families.

Financial assistance is also available for lessons delivered by Music Hub Music Leaders and Accredited Teachers, please speak to your teacher for further information.
