If you and your child(ren) are interested in instrumental tuition through the Essex Music Service scheme, please complete the online registration form at 


Here you will be able to register interest, hire an instrument and apply for tuition vouchers. 

This is a secure website, linked with Essex Music Services (part of Essex County Council). 


Since September 2005, we have organised after-school instrumental lessons, provided by Essex Music Services, for any interested children within the school.  


Now, due to the easing of Covid restrictions, we are now in a position to invite the external instrumental tutors back into school to resume these instrumental lessons, beginning with piano tuition. As we have done previously, we hope to be able to offer a wider range of instruments in due course. Please note that, at this time, we are unable to offer drum lessons as we do not have a drum kit available in school. 


If you and your child are interested in beginning music lessons, please visit the following website where you will find all the relevant information as well as the link to sign up for lessons. ( 


Sessions are organised on a termly basis. The school is only responsible for organising the timetable; Essex Music Services takes payment through a ‘Direct Parent Billing’ service.  


There are ten lessons per term, each lasting 20 minutes. Currently, the cost is £31.60 per hour, which works out at a cost of £105.33 per term.  


Please be aware that by requesting lessons online, you are committing to instrumental lessons if a tutor can be found. Payment will be invoiced through Essex Music Services before lessons can be offered and timetabled by the school.  


If you have any further questions, please contact Miss Huff via the office or your child’s Home School Book.
