Why are instrumental lessons important?

Researchers have found that learning to play a musical instrument can enhance verbal memory, spatial reasoning and literacy skills. Playing an instrument makes you use both sides of your brain, which strengthens memory power.

Playing an instrument helps you get comfortable with self-expression. As children begin to master their instrument, they will probably end up playing to a few audiences, starting with their music teacher or parents, and branching out to groups of other pupils and concert audiences.

Tracking your Child’s Progress:

When your child takes classes with the TBS Music Academy they are provided with a Practise Diary to track their progress. This booklet is brought home to parents each week to keep you up to date with their lesson focus’ and targets to use to practise effectively.

Parents and Guardians are expected to sign off their child’s practise each week.

Inside the booklets have a smiley face rating system to show you how well your child is engaging with the learning and expectations.

Timetable Policy

Students allocated lesson day will stay the same throughout the year. The time will rotate to ensure that they do not miss the same lesson more than once a term. Lessons run from 8:15am- 4:30pm. On rare occasions a student’s lesson might take place after the usual end of school to ensure equality for all students. As music lessons are currently over subscribed, we do not offer breaktime or lunchtime lessons. 

Students can take a maximum of 2 different instrumental lessons.

Lessons are compulsory for students taking GCSE or BTEC Music at KS4 and KS5.
