Instrumental Tuition in School

Instrumental music lessons in school provides an accessible and affordable way for children and young people to learn to play an instrument. Learning in a small group provides opportunities for pupils to develop their music skills in a supportive group environment.

Bristol Plays Music tutors are experienced and highly qualified music educators who teach in schools across Bristol.  Many are professional musicians who regularly perform in bands, orchestras and ensembles.

Our tutors specialise in delivering dynamic and effective sessions across a range of instruments and vocal styles and use the most current training methods and materials to inspire and engage young musicians. Tutors can also help students to take their learning to the next level with music exam support, out of school ensemble sessions and provide access to opportunities for gifted pupils.

BPM works with schools and tutors to accommodate a range of group sizes and learning requests. Typically, lessons take place once a week during the school day with shared 20 minute or 30 minute lessons.  Individual lessons are also available and are most suitable for pupils as they progress and become more proficient.  Most schools will manage the payment of lessons directly but we are currently piloting direct parent billing in two secondary schools.
