Services To Schools
Our musical instrument tuition is essentially available to all schools across the north east. We’d love to hear from you if you are a headteacher, head of the music department or music co-ordinator and are interested in our services. Please contact us to discuss options.
We can certainly deliver long term keyboard, guitar, drum kit or ukulele tuition but if you have a need for the teaching of other instruments such as voice, woodwind, strings, or anything else, please just ask us and we will do our best to help. We can also provide various short term packages including songwriting workshops, ensemble/group work, choir leadership, rhythm workshops, accompanists etc.
If you invite Musicworks into your school to deliver instrumental tuition we will initially provide a free, fun and exciting demonstration of the instrument or instruments you’d like us to teach. These demonstrations would normally be during an assembly and can be aimed at particular year groups or performed to the whole school. They are designed to demonstrate the full capabilities of the instrument in question, to be interesting and informative and, very importantly, to inspire the next generation of musicians.
We distribute flyers to all the pupils who attend the demonstration inviting their parents/guardians to contact us if they’d like their child to receive lessons. Responsibility for payment of the lessons lies with the parents or guardians of the child and Musicworks deals with all administration. In some cases schools part fund the cost of lessons, either through their own school budgets or with the aid of external funding. Workshops are generally paid for by the school.
