Musicscool at Charters School


Inspiring Music Lessons during the school day that invest in the Music Department.

Musicscool provide individual and small group lessons to students across all year groups. We took over the provision of music lessons in January 2022 and have increased the number of children learning by 175%.  It is wonderful to see a thriving music department with young people learning a wide variety of instruments.  Instruments we currently offer include:

  • Piano 

  • Guitar

  • Violin

  • Cello

  • Flute

  • Clarinet

  • Saxophone

  • Trumpet

  • Trombone

  • Singing

But if there is another instrument you're interested in, let us know!  We're happy to help...

We offer a Free Trial session to make sure students are happy with their instrument choice and make a good connection with the teacher.

You can get in touch with us via email to ask about lessons, or simply apply here.


More about our Lessons...

  • Lessons take place on a rotating timetable so that students miss a different part of the day each week. 6th formers can arrange for their lesson to be in free time or during breaks. Musicscool email the timetable at the beginning of each term to the school, parents and the students themselves. 

  • The school are very supportive of lessons during school time as they understand the huge benefit that music lessons can bring to a student's well-being and personal development. 

  • Once enrolled, lessons continue from term to term, year to year unless parents give notice to stop, so there is no need to re-apply at the start of the academic year.

  • INSPIRE-INVEST! Musicscool gives 5% of the cost of every single lesson taken during the school week directly back to the music department for them to spend on increasing music opportunities, equipment or resources to make music at Charters even better!
