Peripatetic Music


Learning to play an instrument can give endless pleasure and also develop a child’s self confidence and self-esteem.

We are very pleased to be able to continue to offer piano with Mrs Barone. Presently, music tuition is available for children in Year 3 and above.

Lessons of 20 minutes’ length are offered to individual pupils for 33 weeks per year and are charged at 11 weeks for each term. Payments are made directly to Hertfordshire Music Service. You will be required to sign up to the HMS online system before your child starts their lessons

An invoice will be sent to you around halfway through each term. Half a term’s notice is required by the Hertfordshire Music Service if your child wishes to cease lessons. Notice must be given directly to HMS through their website.

Remission of fees may be available for parents on a low income. Please go to: for more information and how to apply.

Please be aware that on occasions lessons may be missed due to school trips.  It may be possible to make up missed lessons, but there is no guarantee.  In the Autumn and Summer terms the children take part in a performance to the rest of the school in an assembly.  Parents of children performing may wish to attend and an invitation will be sent at the time.
