Instrumental Lessons

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
