Interested in Instrumental Tuition...

Learning to sing or play a musical instrument can be a valuable and rewarding experience and has been a popular activity at Hounsdown School for many years.  This year, we are offering students lessons in:

 

  • Woodwind - Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone

  • Percussion - Keyboard, Piano, Drums

  • Strings - Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Violin

  • Voice - Singing

 

The majority of peripatetic music lessons are provided by Hampshire Music Service (HMS).  Instrumental tuition is usually taught as a shared lesson and is dependent on which instruments are being learnt and the learning level of the student.  Individual lessons can now be arranged on request.

 

From September 2022, annual tuition fees will be £289.00 for each instrument in a shared lesson.  Individual lessons can be arranged on request at a cost of £534.00.  Financial support may be available, please see details below.

 

All students will receive a minimum of 30 lessons per year and attendance will be monitored.  This equates to approximately £9.63 per shared lesson which represents excellent value for money.

Instruments

Students may use their own instruments; however the school will not be liable for any loss or damage. Hampshire Music Service may be able to provide hire of some instruments.  There is a termly charge and a contract letter must be signed together with confirmation that instruments will be covered by home insurance in case of loss, damage or misuse. Minor damage should be paid for by students.  There is more information on the Hampshire Music website.

Payments / Financial Support

There are various options available, for example an option to spread the cost of lessons over 3 terms or a discount for early payment in full.  For full details, please contact finance by email at finance@hounsdown.hants.sch.uk.

Financial Support

Parents/carers can apply for financial support for tuition fees as outlined below:

 

  • Students who qualify for Free School Meals will receive 100% discount for their first instrument only as long as their requests for financial support for other school events e.g. trips or equipment does not exceed £400 in the academic year, including the discount.  Further instruments will be charged at the full rate.  Guidelines and criteria for free school meals can be found at www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals.
  • Students who qualify for pupil premium will receive an annual discount of £100 for their first instrument only as long as their request for financial support for other school events e.g. trips or equipment, does not exceed £250 in the academic year, including the discount.  Further instruments will be charged at the full rate.  The discount will be applied as follows:  £20 discount against the deposit; £30 discount against fees due for term 1; £30 discount against fees due for term 2 and £20 discount against fees due for term 3.
  • Children in Care will receive 100% discount for their first instrument
