Instrumental and vocal lessons generally take place in schools. The majority of lessons take place during the school day, with a few secondary schools opting for lessons at the end of the school day. Instrumental and vocal teaching also takes place after school at the Music Hub Centre.

The group size and the duration of the lessons is determined by the school in partnership with the Music Service. Schools opt for teaching through the Traded Services Offer.  

Lessons in schools are guaranteed for thirty three weeks of the academic year.

Some schools opt to charge parents on a termly basis. Whilst term lengths vary, some schools charge for eleven sessions per term to spread costs out across the year. This arrangement is at the school’s discretion.
