Instrumental Music Programme

In addition to the varied Music curriculum, WASHK offers all pupils the opportunity to learn a musical instrument in individual (one-on-one) or group (one-on-two) with a 35-minute lesson a week. Our team of visiting specialists are highly qualified and experienced in their particular field and can guide pupil’s learning from complete beginners to advanced levels. The majority of lessons, as is the case in almost all English schools, take place on a rotational basis whereby pupils will come out of part of a different subject class each week. The programme aims to guide pupils to achieve their musical potentials in their familiar and supported learning environment.

  • Violin
