We are pleased to be able to offer individual music lessons at Fulston at competitive rates, through our dedicated and passionate team of professional peripatetic teachers.
Lessons are delivered weekly, in school, with a maximum of 33 lessons each academic year. Parents and carers are asked to encourage students to practice regularly outside of school hours and ensure students arrive promptly to their instrumental lessons.
Students learning to play a musical instrument are expected to take part in our many performing arts activities throughout the year. These include, but are not limited to; FMS Orchestra, Jazz Band, Choir, Samba Band and various other ensembles. Students are also encouraged to take part in other external musical activities run locally in Swale.
For certain instruments, small group lessons may be available. Parents and carers must liaise with the Head of Performing Arts before any changes to lesson durations or configuration are made.
The following fees for individual music lessons for 2023/24 are approximate and are subject to change.
Strings (Violin, Viola & Cello) - £110 for 11 20-minute lessons & £165 for 11 30-minute lessons.
Piano - £102.30 for 11 20-minute lessons & £154 for 11 30-minute lessons.
Guitar - £110 for 10 20-minute lessons.
Drums - £110 for 11 20-minute lessons & £165 for 11 30-minute lessons.

Woodwind - £102.30 for 11 20-minute lessons & £154 for 11 30-minute lessons.
Vocal - £110 for 11 20-minute lessons & £165 for 11 30-minute lessons.
Fees should be paid termly, in advance and all payments must be made directly to the individual tutor.
Half a terms notice must be given, in writing, to the Head of Performing Arts if you intend to cancel your individual instrumental lessons. If correct notice is not given, a charge equivalent to a half-terms fee will be made in lieu of notice.
If, through a teachers' absence, the number of lessons received falls below 33 in an academic year, a credit note will be issued. Should lessons be missed due to student absence, every effort will be made to make up the time lost, but no credit will be given, except in the case of long-term illness or exceptional circumstances.
