Gatehouse offers a wide range of musical tuition taught throughout the school day by specialist teachers.
We currently offer lessons for:
- Drum kit
- French horn
- Percussion (e.g. xylophone)
Lessons are 30 minutes long, and will usually be scheduled once per week. Individual lessons take place between 8.30am and 5.30pm. These are arranged on a rota basis, to ensure that pupils do not miss more than two lessons within a term.
Lessons are booked in blocks of ten sessions across the whole term, and are invoiced in advance. There may be more or less depending on the length of the term, and will not take place in the first or last week of term except under exceptional circumstances. Should a pupil be absent due to illness or non-attendance, then the lesson will be invoiced as normal. However if the pupil is participating in a school-approved activity, such as an educational visit or a sporting fixture, then the lesson will not be invoiced.
If you wish to stop individual music lessons then half a term’s notice is required.
For more information on what instruments are available or to book a session, please contact our Front office who will put you in touch with our Music Coordinator. A downloadable booking form is available in our Parents’ Area.
