Music lessons

Find out about instrumental, vocal and theory lessons

If you’re interested in learning an instrument or to sing – or you’re a parent or carer for a child who is – you’ve come to the right place.

Group and individual music lessons are available in schools around the county from a network of inspiring tutors who will help your child fulfil their musical ambitions. Some tutors work directly for West Sussex Music, others are freelance Associates. All are the best in the county, as they take part in ongoing CPD and have passed our quality approval process and safeguarding checks.  Find out more and apply below.

If we can’t match you with a suitable tutor who works in your school, one of our Associates may be able to help: as well as working in schools, they may also offer out of school lessons.

Between us, we teach a huge range of instruments. Even if your instrument is not on our list we may still teach it, so please ask.

We have small group lessons, usually 3 or more pupils for 30 minutes and especially good when starting off, and individual lessons from 20 minutes upwards.

Lessons take place in school during or just after the school day and may be enhanced by online tuition. Additionally, our Associates may teach from home.

Group lessons: £8.50 per lesson

Individual 20min lessons: £13.90 per lesson

Individual 30min lessons: £20.40 per lesson

The costs above are for West Sussex music tutors. Please note that our Associates set their own rates.

West Sussex Music has a stock of instruments that can be loaned to learners. Priority is given to beginners and those who otherwise would not be able to hire or buy from elsewhere.

The choice is yours. Many children enjoy the fun of group lessons and learning with their friends. For others, they need the focus and attention that an individual lesson provides.

Please let us know. If enough pupils are interested, we’ll contact your school to organise for a visiting music tutor.

If a teacher misses a lesson then it will be made up later in the term or later in the year. If the full course of lessons has not been offered, we will offer credits (please see our regulations and conditions). It is not possible to refund or make up lessons missed by pupils.

All tutors are subject to annual child safeguarding training, have enhanced criminal records checks (DBS) and possess public liability insurance. Most are music conservatoire or university graduates, some are qualified classroom teachers and many have an active professional performing career as well. All tutors have been through a safer recruitment or registration process and they have training throughout the year to help them maintain and develop their skills.
