Mr M Hogg - Subject leader

Peripatetic Music Team


Although we do not have limitless resources we seek to encourage and support pupils, regardless of ability, ethnicity and socio economic background, to consider learning to play a wide range of instruments and styles to match their interests and aspirations. There is presently 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
