Learning an Instrument

Instrumental learning is a valued skill at Plumcroft. Children are encouraged to continue with trumpet/guitar/clarinet after the First Access programme in Year 4 and as soon as instrumentalists can play well enough they are encouraged to join band. Children are encouraged to take a Grade exam if they show talent and are sign-posted to the Music Hub Saturday morning Music Centre.

Lessons cost £6.50 per hour (help may be available for those on free school dinners). Instruments are available to borrow from school, on payment of a one-off £10 deposit. Please contact the office if you would like your child to learn an instrument.

We offer the following instruments:


  • Recorder (children are encouraged to progress on to woodwind or brass in KS2)
  • Ukulele (may continue into KS2 or progress on to guitar lessons)


  • Trumpet
  • Piano
  • Drum kit
  • Guitar
  • Woodwind – flute/saxophone/clarinet
