Individual Music Lessons

We offer a wide range of group or individual instrument lessons at Hayes. Children in Years 3-6 are able to learn the following instruments:

  • Strings – violin, cello, double bass, guitar
  • Brass – trumpet, trombone, baritone, tenor horn, French horn
  • Percussion – drum kit
  • Piano
  • Woodwind – flute, clarinet

Our music room is used all day every day for one-to-one lessons, with additional lessons happening in other rooms in the school. We are still in the process of developing our ‘Music Hub’ space.

We are also aware that instrument lessons come at a cost, so we offer support to Pupil Premium children and offer to pay for part or all of their lessons where needed. We believe that it is important for these opportunities to be available to all.

Children are also given the chance to give solo performances to the rest of the school during singing assemblies.

Music Lesson Application Form

Please download a form from this website, under the pupils/clubs/BYMT music lessons section, if your child is interested in having lessons. Please return the form to the school office who will pass it onto the BYMT (Bromley Youth Music Trust).

You will be contacted directly by the music teacher when a place becomes available. The office does not hold a waiting list at school. If you would like to contact the BYMT directly, please phone 0208 467 1566. If you are happy to have group lessons the waiting time may be shorter.

If your child is offered a place, the lessons take place during the school day (apart from drums which are after school). Your child will be allocated a lesson on the same day of each week. The lesson time will change to ensure they don’t miss the same lesson each week. It is the responsibility of the child to turn up on time. Timetables for all music lessons are available outside the music room in school at the end of the Year 2 Corridor.
