Do you want to learn to play a musical instrument or learn how to sing?

We can provide you with lessons on virtually any instrument. We cover all the orchestral instruments and if you are a guitarist our teachers can work with you in any style, rock, pop or classical. Our percussion teachers also cover every style possible and will teach you how to read drum notation.

Do you love to sing and want to take it further? All our singing teachers can coach you in popular styles as well as the more classical. Being a versatile singer is so important these days.

All South Gloucestershire schools offer Small Group and Individual lessons for which families generally pay.  Some schools support  students financially and any  child that is  ‘looked after’ by the Local Authority must not  be charged for lessons by schools, and the Music Hub  will provide their instrument (excluding pianos and other non-portable instruments) and core music book needs for no charge.

The Music Hub has over 60 instrumental and vocal teachers working in our schools.

To book instrumental or vocal lessons in school, families should approach the school’s Head of Music or Music Co-ordinator in the first instance. They will then contact the Music Hub to ensure that an appropriate teacher is scheduled to visit the school.


Making progress

Every student who learns with the South Gloucestershire Music Hub received a free “Playing@home diary”. As well as offering useful hints on how to progress it also allows students to set targets and reflect on progress. We ask that you track how many minutes you play on your instrument very week. If you lose your diary it can be downloaded here.

We are a centre for Trinity Music exams and every year over 200 young musicians visit the hub to take these examinations. We have a terrific pass rate. Rock and Pop Musicians take their exams in Bristol and teachers also enter students for ABRSM and LCM examinations.

In addition to communicating progress in the Play@Home Diary teachers will make interim progress and attendance checks at the end of terms 2 and 6 which are sent to the school and a yearly written report at the end of Term 4 which will be issued to parents by schools in term 5/6.
