Music Tuition at Davenant
Over 200 students take part in Instrumental, Dance or Drama Tuition on a weekly basis. Students are tutored by 12 highly skilled musicians and teachers with a great deal of experience in supporting and nurturing young musicians. Students at Davenant take part in several sell-out concerts, KS3&4 recital evenings, dance productions, musicals and even have the opportunity to perform abroad.
Lesson times change each week and typically last for 30 minutes. We aim to run a system resulting in pupils not missing the same lesson on a regular basis. Some parents may be concerned about this aspect of learning, but experience has shown that pupils learn to organise themselves well and make up any missed work without any problems. It is important to note that some lessons may fall outside of school hours.
It is possible for most instruments to be hired directly from the school at a modest hire charge. Any child who has lessons at the school will be required to take part in the appropriate band or choir. This is compulsory.
For students it is essential that they view their lesson times on GOOGLE Classroom and access other useful information. The timetables are also posted outside the Music Office.
It is essential that parents familiarise themselves with how the system work, read and understand the Terms and Conditions and encourage their child to check GOOGLE Classroom for updates.
If you wish your child to have instrumental, singing or drama lessons, please complete the 'online application form' and make payments via Parentpay.
