Instrumental lessons can be of great value to everyone. Whether they are being taken for future career reasons or purely for fun, learning an instrument has been proven to enhance a child’s learning in all curriculum areas.

Instrumental and vocal tuition is available to all students from beginners to experienced players. We require that all lessons are booked and paid for at the beginning of the term in advance of lessons commencing.

Parents/Carers should be aware that the school enters a financial commitment on your behalf and employs the peripatetic teachers for the forthcoming term. Any student wishing to stop instrumental lessons during a term will therefore not be entitled to a refund of the fees.

Music lessons at Alec Hunter Academy take place during timetabled lessons for 10 weeks of each term.

The tuition amounts, based on 10 lessons, are as follows:

  • Shared lessons for 20-minutes for two @ £52.67 per student (£17.91)
  • 15-minute individual lessons @ £79.00 (£26.86)
  • 20 minutes individual lessons @ £105.33 (£35.81)
  • 30 minute individual lessons @ £158.00   (£53.72)

If there is a Music Tuition Discount in place the lesson costs are 66% less and are shown in brackets.
