We are committed to providing the very best in musical education and opportunities for our pupils. The development of our award-winning Music department in 2006 and the attainment of 'All-Steinway School' status in 2015, are a testament to this determination to offer enhanced provision in this important area.

In recognising that a music education is important, we also want to ensure that barriers to taking up an instrument are not insurmountable.

Music Tuition Assistance Scheme

Our Music Tuition Assistance Scheme provides pupils with financial assistance for individual instrumental or vocal lessons at Loughborough Schools Music in two main areas:

1. The Endangered Species Instrument Programme

This programme is designed to encourage the take-up of less common instruments, such as the trombone, French horn or bassoon, to ensure that we can continue to provide balanced ensemble provision in the future. This two-year Programme provides pupils with one term’s instrumental tuition free of charge, followed by five further terms of tuition at half the usual rate.

2. Instrumental Music Assistance

Instrumental Music Assistance is available to enable pupils receiving means-tested financial assistance to access our exceptional instrumental teaching, giving a discount on the cost of instrumental tuition.

These opportunities only exist thanks to the generosity of donors like you. Your gift will open the door for pupils to a music education the likes of which they can barely imagine – and once they’ve started, there will be no stopping them.

Should you feel you are able to help, by making a single donation, or a regular gift, please use the links below.
