Instrumental Lessons Information

We are pleased to work with Shropshire Music Service to offer small group and individual lessons for strings, brass, woodwind, drums/percussion, piano/keyboard, guitar, ukulele and singing. Most instruments can be started from Year 3, with some exceptions (please enquire for more details). The Music Service also offers affordable hire for most instruments if needed. Lessons take place in school, but pupils should be enrolled via the Music Service directly. 


Shropshire Music Service is a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing high quality, accessible music education for young people in Shropshire. Lessons are usually paid for by parents, but substantial reductions in cost and a range of bursaries are available for those in challenging financial circumstances.


The County School of Music (CSM) is the collective name for Shropshire's youth bands, orchestras and choirs. The following regular ensembles are open to all Music Service students at the appropriate stage in their learning:

  • Concert Band (intermediate and senior) - Brass, woodwind, percussion. Grade 3+

  • String Orchestra (intermediate and senior) - Strings, percussion. Grade 3+

  • Stompers - A mixed band for all instruments at beginner level up to grade 2.

  • Choir - Dedicated girls and boys choirs, welcoming a mix of vocal abilities.

The regular ensembles are complimented by a programme of workshops throughout the year, which have recently included Rock & Pop Band, and Ceilidh Band.
