Learning an Instrument

Instrumental learning is a valued skill at Plumcroft. Lessons are offered throughout the school and as soon as instrumentalists can play well enough they are encouraged to join the school 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 where lots of music is on offer.

Lessons cost £7.00 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. If you would like your child to learn an instrument please book via Magic Booking. ‚Äč
