Mr M Hogg - Subject leader

Peripatetic Music Team


We believe every child should have the opportunity to learn an instrument to develop self-expression and we do our best to accommodate as many students as possible. Currently we have around 150 students per week involved in extra-curricular music lessons on a range of instruments and vocals. There is currently no charge for this service.


We believe that learning an instrument (including singing) encourages the development of important skills, including:

  • confidence and creativity
  • concentration
  • perseverance and independent learning
  • team skills and working with others
  • coordination
  • personal responsibility
  • self-expression and relieves stress
  • listening skills
  • a sense of achievement
  • self-discipline
  • time management and organisational skills
  • an insight into a range of cultures
