CVC Music School

Instrument Tuition

The Music School offers all pupils from all years and abilities the opportunity to learn a musical instrument or enjoy extra-curricular activities. The school has developed and grown over many years and currently there are almost 200 pupils learning to play instruments, successfully passing exams and performing in concerts and productions.

Applications are welcome from pupils in all years at any time in the school year. If an instrument is oversubscribed, you may be placed on a waiting list until a space is available. For Transition year 6 pupils, a separate mailing will be sent during the Summer Term with all information required for registering for lessons.

Lessons are held during the normal school day. As pupils are required to come out of lessons to attend, they are timetabled by rotation on a given day that the tutor is teaching in school. 6th Form students are timetabled in non-curricular time.

Please take time to read the Information Booklet carefully before completing the Application Form. The take up of lessons is based on acceptance of the conditions under which lessons are offered.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email
