Music Lessons

Instrumental lessons are a great way to not only engage your child in music making but are also proven to improve their confidence, concentration and much research has shown the positive effect of music on English and Maths in particular.

At Dunalley a range of external music lesson providers come into school and provide solo and group tuition during the school day. Lessons are delivered on a rota so that children do not miss the same subject time and again.
Please see the individual registration forms for more information and costs.

A student bursary is also available for those who wish to apply for financial assistance. This can cover tuition, instrument hire and exam fees up to £200 per term (based on a 3 term year). Follow the link here or telephone 01452 330300 for more information.

LetsPlay Drums
Lessons are during school hours, with one-to-one tuition or groups of two. This lessons are available to children from 5 years of age and up.
No books are needed for the first term and folders are provided with all the reference material that they will need. It is not essential that each student has their own drum kit to start with.
We can advise in purchasing the right kit including recommending electronic kits which can be played with headphones.

LetsPlay Guitar
Lessons are during school hours in small groups of two or three. Private lessons can be arranged on request (please get in touch for details). Playing music with others promotes good timing and listening skills, it also motivates students to practise and allows them to enjoy their hobby with their friends.
Each child must have their own guitar. We have a number of hire guitars available, please contact us for details. If you are purchasing a guitar, we can help advise you.
No books are needed for the first few terms as we provide folders with all the reference material that they will need.
