Interested in learning to sing or play an instrument?

Begin your musical journey today!

Have you ever heard an amazing musician in action and wished you could do that? Well, everyone starts somewhere – why not begin your journey today?

Whether you’re interested in enhancing your vocal skills, learning an instrument, or exploring lessons for a young person you think would love to have a go, we can help.

West Sussex Music has lessons suitable for children and young people at all levels – from complete beginners to those who are already seasoned experts looking to broaden their range.

Here’s a guide to what we offer:

Between us, we teach a huge range of orchestral instruments, including brass, woodwind, string and percussion instruments, contemporary instruments, including guitar, keyboard and drum kit, as well as singing. 

Whether you want to take up piano, a traditional orchestral instrument like the violin, cello or flute, find your jazz groove on the trumpet or saxophone, or rock on the guitar or drums, there is a teacher for you.

We also offer lessons in composition, theory, and song writing.

Our music teachers visit schools to provide lessons to children. Most lessons take place during the school day or just before or after school hours. The tutors and schools work out the best day and time for their visit.

We have a network of inspiring providers who will help your child fulfil their musical ambitions. Some teachers work directly for West Sussex Music, others are freelance Associate Tutors.

All of our music tutors are quality-assured by us; taking part in ongoing Continuing Professional Development (CPD), passing our quality approval process and safeguarding checks. They have enhanced criminal record checks (DBS) and 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.

Group Lessons: small groups of three or more pupils are taught together for 30 minutes. This is a great way to start off. 

Individual Lessons: can also be arranged, from 20 minutes upwards.


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.

Cost of music lessons

The standard course of tuition lessons is 33 per academic year

Instrument hire is £31.50 per term

Meet our music teachers


We all thought the concert at Worthing Assembly Halls was just wonderful and we were so proud of our daughter.  She also really enjoyed being part of the orchestra and the concert and is looking forward to next term. She has spoken about how much her playing has improved by being in the orchestra.

Many thanks to West Sussex Music for a brilliant term.

I wanted to draw your attention to the wonderful teaching Anna, my daughter, receives from Mr Will Wilkins, via West Sussex Music. She has always delighted in his lessons, and how he makes learning the cornet so fun … Even when she’s tired, he manages to get the best out of her.
It is wonderful to see the progress she is making.


I really wanted to send you a message to say a personal thank you for all your help with Joe, Lily and Theo. They had a fabulous time with you for the three days and thanks to your work, Lily had the confidence to join in with a performance for a big family party we had at the weekend. I know for a fact she would not have done it if it wasn’t for the time she had with you at the Rock school. This has now given us a special memory of being able to perform as a family.  THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH
