The Norwood School

Music Department

Music Lessons at Norwood


Instrumental lessons are available at Norwood in addition to all the free clubs and ensembles that we run in the department.


These lessons take place during the school day - students are required to leave their curriculum lessons to attend them - they operate on a carousel basis so students do not miss the same lesson multiple weeks in a row.


Please be aware that all students wanting to receive instrumental lessons will be required to pay for lessons in advance at the beginning of each term. This includes Bursary students and students in Y10 and Y11. Payment will be required termly in advance via ParentPay. 


Please complete this Google form by Monday 20th September to confirm that you are interested in your child receiving lessons this year. We have made lessons available at 3 different price points to ensure that as many students as possible can access lessons. Bofa 6ZS bBc cD96


Shortly after this date you will see that a payment option will be added to Parent Pay - please ensure that you have paid for this term's lessons by Monday 27th September.

Instrumental hire


If students wish to hire an instrument from the school it will be billed at  £30 a year / £10 a term to cover instrumental costs of replacement strings/ reeds/ repair.


Brass lessons


We have not at present recruited a brass teacher for this term - I am hopeful that we will have one in place for next half term. Please still register your interest via the Google Form.
