Whole Class Tuition (Schools)
At Sussex Music School, we believe that all children have a right to a good quality Music Education.
Sussex Music School provide whole class instrumental tuition to children in schools on a variety of instruments. Lessons are well structured for progression but allow space and time for creativity. All children will learn:
- Instrumental skills
- Music reading skills
through the chosen instrument. Lessons cover the National Curriculum requirements. In primary schools, the class teacher is expected to be present throughout and learn alongside the children, assisting the instrumental teacher as necessary. This in accordance with Ofsted guidelines.
Sessions in Primary schools last ½ hour or 45 minutes. A typical secondary lesson lasts 1 hour. At SMS we believe in developing our music workforce, enabling them to use up-to-date teaching methods and fully understand the needs of each learner. To this end our professional teachers receive ongoing training, monitoring and support from our senior team. Only the best teachers in
the field locally are accredited to SMS. Valuing our teachers is paramount as this will translate into the best musical experiences for our students. To view our code of practise, click here.
