Our instrumental programme is hugely popular with our students. It gives them the opportunity to perform at concerts throughout the year and study for examinations.
We offer students in Year 2 and above the option of taking private music lessons at school.
Our team of highly experienced music teachers are all professional musicians who speak English fluently.
We currently offer lessons in the following instruments:
- Guitar (electric, acoustic, classical)
- Percussion (drums, xylophone)
- Woodwind (clarinet, saxophone, recorder)
- Brass (trumpet, French horn, trombone)
- Voice (focus, jazz, contemporary styles)
Students can register for Trinity Examinations, Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), and/or Rock School performance exams. These exams take place in late May or early June. Talk to your child’s instrumental teacher as soon as possible if you're considering exam registration.
Individual lessons last for 30 minutes and are scheduled throughout the school day, including co-curricular time, before school, lunchtime, and after school. Due to their academic workload, Year 11 and Year 13 students take part in lessons outside of class time where possible. If you'd like your child to have more than one lesson a week, additional lessons are subject to teacher availability.
Each 30-minute lesson costs 4000HUF. The teacher will send you an invoice each term. Payment is made by cash directly to the teacher or by bank transfer.
A register will be kept to ensure that students receive the lessons they've paid for. If a student forgets to attend a lesson, every effort will be made to locate them. If it's not possible to locate the student, no credit can be given for the missed lesson. If your child is going to be absent from school on the day of their music lesson, please notify the instrumental teacher 24 hours in advance, otherwise this may result in payment.
A limited number of instruments are available to rent from the school: clarinet, flute, saxophone, acoustic guitar, trumpet, trombone, French horn, cello and violin.
For more information on renting an instrument, please ask your instrumental teacher.
To schedule private music lessons, please contact the teacher(s) directly via email. Their contact details can be found in the brochure below. Please specify the day you require from the list below and the teacher will be in touch to confirm the first week’s time slot once the lesson has been scheduled. Where possible, please ensure that the day you select does not coincide with a swimming lesson or co-curricular activity, as this can restrict rotation for your child.
The programme is very popular, so we advise parents to sign up as soon as possible. We endeavour to provide this opportunity for all interested students. However, in the event of over-subscription, places will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis and a waiting list will be opened.
