Lessons in Schools

Lessons during school time are organised and invoiced by your child's school. Each school decides which instruments they would like to take lessons in subject to pupil demand. Worcestershire Youth Music (WYM) charges schools at a standard hourly rate and schools set their own charging policies. Please contact your school office or Music Coordinator to find out which instruments they take and how much they charge for lessons.

You should also ensure that your child has an instrument before they commence lessons.  These can be hired from the WYM.

Schools offer lessons in a selection of the following instruments:

  • Brass
  • Guitar
  • Keyboard
  • Percussion
  • Recorder
  • Strings
  • Woodwind

Outside school time WYM runs lessons, as well as a wide range of ensembles and activities, at six local Area Music Centres.
