Instrumental Lessons

Lessons during Lockdown:

All of our peripatetic instrumental music teachers are well setup at home to successfully conduct the lessons online using Zoom and both students and teachers have found this remote method to have been very successful. All you require as a student is a computer or smartphone/tablet. It has meant that current students have been able to continue lessons during this period, something that has been hugely important in order to maintain continuity. As soon as face to face tuition is possible again, instrumental lessons will resume in school as usual. Until that time, instrumental lessons will continue to be conducted remotely and we are now open to applications for all new students (including the new year 7 intake).

 

 

Why Play a Musical Instrument?

Making music is a great way for young people to be creative; it requires them to think quickly and express themselves.  Playing a musical instrument also teaches children to manage information, think about and solve problems, as well as being able to work collaboratively with others.  It is a great way to make friends and work towards a finished product, whether it is mastering tricky fingering or performing in the end of term concerts.

Our Expectations

Learning an instrument requires commitment and we expect students to attend all lessons.  There are many groups for students to join and rehearse towards performances in assemblies, visits to other schools and concerts, including:

Guitar Club – String Group – Brass Band – Senior Jazz Band – Orchestra – Junior Jazz Band – Medleys & Mashups – Choir – Samba Band – Music Tech Club – DJ Club

Students are expected to join one of these groups where appropriate; they are provided at no extra cost and we have a number of orchestral instruments that can be loaned to students - and it is, of course, their responsibility to look after it!  

For further information on instrumental lessons at HWS please see document links below and/or contact the music co-ordinator Krisztina Lakatos at: klakatos@hinchleywoodschool.co.uk
