A High Performing Specialist Academy for Technology & Applied Learning

Music Lessons

Collingwood College encourages all students to learn to play an instrument.  Lessons are available for students wanting to continue tuition, and for those wanting to start learning after a break from lessons or as a beginner.

Our tutors provide lessons for students at all stages in their development and regularly enter candidates for accredited music examinations using the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), Trinity and Rockschool Examination Boards.

Music lessons take place during the College day and before/after College.  Tuition is currently available for the following instruments at Collingwood College: 

  • Woodwind: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone
  • Brass: Trumpet, Trombone
  • Keyboard: Piano
  • Guitar: Acoustic (classical), Electric, Bass
  • Ukulele
  • Drum Kit
  • Singing
  • Music Theory.

Lessons for other instruments are available through Surrey Arts at another local centre.

Lessons for most Instruments are provided through Surrey Arts, with Piano, Guitar and Ukulele being offered through Collingwood Instrumental Services.

Face to Face or Online Lessons

Students mainly have lessons ‘face to face’, however some Parents/Carers have enjoyed the flexibility of lessons being provided online. Some teachers are able to offer ‘online’ lessons during 2021-2022.  

General Information Regarding Music Lessons

Whilst on the premises waiting for an instrumental lesson, students must abide by the College rules.  Parents/Carers are responsible for the safety of their child at all times when attending lessons at Collingwood before or after the College day and should arrange to collect students promptly when lessons take place after College.

Instruments brought into College are left at the owner’s risk and must be left in the instrument cupboards in M1 or M2.  Instruments to be collected from these rooms at 3.05pm.

The College will not accept any responsibility for loss of, or damage to, instruments.  It is advisable to include the instrument on a household “All Risk Policy”.

No lessons will be scheduled on INSET, Enterprise or Academic Review Day closures.

There are also many additional extra-curricular activities and performance opportunities for musicians at Collingwood College which we hope music students will contribute to.
