Peripatetic Lessons

Peripatetic Lessons

At John Smeaton Academy we are pleased to offer a selection of instrumental lessons to all students taught by experienced, professional, musicians. These lessons are of extremely high quality and are at a heavily subsidised rate. The instruments we have on offer are as follows:

  • Guitar Electric/Acoustic
  • Bass Guitar
  • Keyboard
  • Voice
  • Drums

Lessons are charged at £5 per lesson (with financial support available for eligible students). Lessons are weekly and are taught individually or in groups and last for 20 minutes each.

There is no requirement to have previous experience as we often find starting secondary school is an ideal time to start learning an instrument.

Our commitment is not just to the individual peripatetic lessons but also to the delivery of high quality ensemble musical experiences that equip our students with valuable life skills as well as the essential music making skills required of a professional musician. We currently have a fantastic band club that is made up of some phenomenal musicians. Please see the Enrichment++ timetable for more information.
