2019/2020 – Additional Music Lessons

In September we are changing the way school offers additional music lessons. We will still be continuing the provision of guitar lessons for the whole class as part of our curriculum which is non chargeable, although Year 5 will continue guitar for the Autumn term (up to Christmas) and Year 4 will start from Spring term (from January)

Lancashire Music Service have provided musical opportunities for children and young people across Lancashire for over 50 years. Our approach to teaching is broad and inclusive and we aim to inspire a lifelong love of music.

LMS offer children and young people the chance to learn woodwind, brass, strings, guitar, ukulele, singing, percussion, drums*, keyboard and piano* with their experienced and inspiring teachers and with the first year of learning supported by award-winning online resources. They also offer an affordable instrument hire scheme. *drums and piano individual lessons only.

LMS - Parental Direct Payment scheme

The Parental Direct Payment scheme allows parents to pay the Music Service directly for instrumental and vocal tuition.

All lessons will still be delivered in school.

  • Lessons are usually delivered in small groups and are a minimum of 20 minutes’
