We would like to offer students the opportunity to take part in instrumental / vocal music lessons in school starting in the autumn term.
INSTRUMENTAL TUITION CURRENTLY AVAILABLE
Percussion (drum kit)
Guitar (Electric, Acoustic, Bass)
Brass (trumpet, cornet, trombone, tuba, horn, baritone)
Please note that other instruments may be available if viable group sizes can be achieved. If your child wishes to learn an instrument not listed above, then please contact Music Partnership North to discuss further.
Lessons take place weekly, during the school day, either individually or in groups of up to 4 and are of 30 minutes duration. We deliver up to 33 lessons over the academic year.
The cost of tuition equates to £6.25 per lesson for a shared lesson or £17.50 for an individual lesson. We have a limited number of instruments for hire, although we do not hire percussion or keyboards. The cost of instrument hire is £23.00 per term unless your child qualifies for free school meals or is a looked after child in which case hire is free. Additional costs will need to be considered such as the purchase of a tutor book, valve oil for a brass instrument and replacement strings for violins. Please visit our website at http://music.northumberland.gov.uk, for full terms and conditions and additional information on instrument hire.
Parents wishing to purchase an instrument can do so through us without paying VAT. This is called an Assisted Purchase Scheme and details of this can be found on our website together with links to various organisations who may be able to offer financial assistance.
If you would like to register your child for lessons then please visit https://live.paritor.com/p/2302. Once you have completed the registration process we will allocate your child to a lesson and forward details of the day and time and how lessons can be paid for. This information will be sent out at the start of the autumn term. Registration must be completed before 7th September 2019.
If you have any questions concerning tuition or registration, please contact Lesley Scott at the office on 01670 624045.
Please note the steel pan lessons are provided by a different supplier and you need to sign up for them separately. Please see Ms Jones if you need further details about this.

Pupils at Newminster and Chantry have been rehearsing ready to perform the musical ‘The Rocky Monster Show’ in June.
Tickets will be available for the ‘The Rocky Monster Show’ performances at the school offices from Monday 15th May (strictly morning break times only). The tickets are priced at £4 adult and £3 child / OAP.
About the ‘The Rocky Monster Show’…..
Bizarre, anarchic and very funny, this Rock ‘n’ Roll musical is a riotous mix of the Addams Family, Young Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera, with Rebecca and The Rocky Horror Show thrown in for good measure!
Baron Frankenstein’s descendant, and ex-pop star turned professor of Genetics, creates DNA moulds of people in his computer. How these moulds come to life as the ultimate Rock Group, headed by a clone of Elvis himself is the highlight of the hilarious plot.
More traditional monsters also add spice to the explosive mixture. Audience and cast will love the Rock ‘n’ Roll score, much of which is an affectionate send-up of the 60’s.
