Musical Tuition

To help nurture and inspire the next generation of musicians, our Junior students receive a weekly 75-minute music lesson throughout Year 7 and in modules in Year 8 and 9,. This allows them the opportunity to learn how to play the ukulele, guitar and keyboard, as well as a wide selection of brass instruments, and develop compositional skills using a range of software packages.

Following on from these classes, many of our young men are inspired to continue their instrumental education through individual lessons with our outstanding team of more than twenty visiting music teachers, covering all disciplines (orchestral, vocal and popular).

To further enhance our music provision, we have been facilitating a music scholarship scheme for the past number of years in which boys entering the school can audition to receive free tuition on selected instruments, thus ensuring that the ‘endangered species’ of orchestral instruments do not get forgotten.

Many musicians choose GCSE and A-Level Music, where we have an excellent track record, and even in our departing Year 13 class, we have two Oxbridge organ scholars, two music conservatoire entrants and one drama college entrant, amongst other leavers studying a wide variety of subjects.

RGS Instrumental Lesson Request Form

Please complete a separate form for each lesson request.

Select one of the following*
Which instrument are you requesting lessons for? These are the instruments for which we currently offer lessons. If the instrument you wish to learn is not on this list, please get in touch via RGSmusic@rgshw.com and we will do our best to direct you to a suitable tutor outside of school.*
.Are you new to learning this instrument?*
If your answer to the above question is 'No', please let us know what level you have reached.*
Lessons are paid for privately and are a direct contract between the instrumental teacher and the parents, which includes a minimum of half a term's notice. The lessons normally take place on a rotating timetable so that no curricular lesson is missed more than once every 3-4 weeks. The student will need to excuse themselves from their timetabled lesson to attend their music lesson and will be expected to catch up the work missed. I am prepared for my details to be forwarded to the relevant teacher so that they can get in touch with me directly.*
