Instrumental Tuition

We strive to increase every student’s ability to communicate musically within a stimulating and supportive environment, where independent thinking and exploration of musical topics is expected.  Students are encouraged to take risks with their learning and through this, they develop their confidence to work effectively both separately and in group scenarios.

Students can take advantage of a wide range of musical enrichment activities, from tuition in a variety of instruments through our network of esteemed tutors, to our award-winning choirs and vocal groups.  Students are also offered the opportunity to broaden their musical horizons through the use of Music production technology and skilled tuition in the use of our state-of-the-art recording studio.

    1. Contract. The contract for music tuition is between the hirer (i.e. parent/carer) and the music tutor.
    1. Payments.  Arrangements for payment are made directly between the hirer and the instrumental tutor.  Please do not send payments to The Beacon School or via ParentPay.
    1. Refunds.  It is unlikely that music tutors will issue a refund for a missed lesson, unless notice is given to the peripatetic teacher directly in accordance with his/her terms and conditions (This is normally with at least 24 hours in advance).
    1. Termination.  Parents/carers who wish to terminate their child’s instrumental tuition must give the appropriate notice to the tutor (this will be stated in your contract with the tutor).  Parents/carers are still responsible for making all payments up to the end of the notice period and students are expected to attend all lessons up to the same period.
    1. Instruments.  Students are required to have their own instrument for lessons and independent practice. 
    1. Insurance/storage.  Students are welcome to leave their instruments stored in the Music Department during the school day.  It is advised that parents/carers have an additional musical instrument insurance policy to cover theft and accidental damage, as the Music Department does not accept responsibility for equipment left in storage before, during or after lessons.  All instruments must be collected at the end of the school day, unless agreed with a member of the Music Department.
    1. Lessons.  The Beacon School will confirm the date and time of the first lesson by letter or email as soon as is known.

    Students are expected to know their lesson time and arrive promptly.  A timetable for lessons will be displayed on the Music Department noticeboard, located outside classroom S2.  Students are advised to check this timetable regularly in case of changes. The Music Department is not responsible for ensuring students attend their lesson or for follow up on students who missed their lesson. 

    If tuition is timetabled during a lesson, it is the responsibility of the student, at the beginning of the lesson, to politely make their class teacher aware and to catch up on work that has been missed.

    Where possible, students in Years 10 and 11 will have their lessons timetabled for after school to avoid missing preparation for GCSE examinations.  Sixth Form students should liaise directly with the Head of Music to arrange a lesson during their independent study time.

    1. Data protection.  By submitting this form after reading this agreement, you agree that The Beacon School can pass your details as given on the form above, to the appropriate instrumental tutor, for the purposes of communication with invoicing.
