Music Lessons

All children have class music lessons during school time. 

Individual instrumental tuition, is also provided by peripatetic teachers from the Northampton Music and Performing Arts Trust. Lessons take place during the school day.  These lessons are classed as 'extra-curricular' and must be self financing, and therefore incur a charge. 


Should your child wish to give up their music lessons, we ask you for 5 weeks written notice.  You will be expected to pay for those 5 weeks.  In practice, if the child's place can be filled by a child on the waiting list, you will not be asked to pay for the extra weeks.


At present we offer individual lessons for:

  • guitar
  • keyboard/piano
  • woodwind

Also available would be strings (violin/cello), brass (trumpet/cornet/various horns), percussion (drums) and voice, but we would need a group of at least six children before Northampton Music and Performing Arts would deem it viable to come out to Long Buckby.

In the Autumn Term  we were able to offer "First Access Ukulele" to the whole of Year 4.  

The lessons are given by the teachers from Northampton Music and Performing Art Trust.  The children greatly enjoy these lessons and usually give a very entertaining performance at the end of the first course.
