  • At HCM Music Academy, we know that not all schools have the internal resources required for dedicated musical instrument lessons for their students.

    So we’ve developed our music in schools service which works closely with individual education providers to offer bespoke instrument teaching to suit their students. Your school can choose from weekly lessons in guitar, drums, vocals, and piano, on either an individual or group tuition basis, with all requirements specifically adapted to the needs of your school’s music department.

    The lessons

    School instrument lessons are 30 minutes in length for group lessons and  20 or 30 minutes for one-to-one lessons. Group lessons cost £12.75 per student, per lesson, and one-to-one lessons cost £14.75 per 20 minute lesson and £22 per 30 minute lesson. Group lessons are taught with a maximum of 4 students per class. Pupils will learn to read music and play a selection of songs across a variety of genres. The classes will follow an applicable graded syllabus, and therefore students can monitor their progress and be inspired during their ongoing musical journeys.

    Our music teachers

    HCM’s tutors all have a strong passion for inspiring children to learn to play musical instruments. Not only are they astounding instrumentalists themselves, but they recognise how young people learn and are confident in communicating often complex musical principles in an easy-to-understand way.

    All our teachers are Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked as part of Hertfordshire County Council’s DBS team (previously known as CRB) and operate within a strict safeguarding policy. They have also undertaken both child protection and first aid training.
