Currently at St Monica’s Primary School we are offering the below instrumental lessons.

InstrumentRecommended Age Range
Ukulele/Violin/ViolaYear 2 upwards
Keyboard/Drum KitYear 2 upwards
Guitar**Year 3 upwards

Additional School Notes:

Drum Kit lessons – only available as individual lessons (there is only one drum kit in school).

Keyboard lessons – available as individual or paired (not group).

Guitar – for students in year 3, once a place is confirmed it is recommended to purchase a half size acoustic guitar with nylon strings. The music service only stocks 3/4 size guitars for hire which is usually advised as suitable for year 3 upwards. We don’t recommend hiring guitars beyond one term due to the relatively low purchase cost.

General Info:

We offer group, paired and individual lessons at the school dependent on the instrument (see above). Where a group lesson is unable to take place due to lack of applications we may be in touch to offer you alternative lesson proposals.
