Instrumental/Vocal lessons

Prince William School has an outstanding reputation for music making and we currently offer lessons on all main instruments and voice during the academic year. 

Lessons are provided by the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust (NMPAT).  Teachers make 33 visits to the school during the academic year. 

Learning an instrument is an exciting and valuable experience that can lead to an enjoyable life-long skill.   All music groups are paid for by Prince William School at considerable cost and as such, all students receiving instrumental or vocal lessons participate in extra-curricular groups as directed by myself, Miss Baxter and the teaching staff from NMPAT.

From September 2017, the following options for lessons are available to you:

  • Shared lesson - £70 per 11 lessons (equivalent to 10 minutes per student).  Suggested for beginner to Grade 1
  • Individual 20 minute lesson - £140 per 11 lessons.  Suggested for grades 2-4
  • Individual 30 minute lesson - £209 per 11 lessons.  Suggested for grade 5+

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me via the School Office or email -
