Instrumental and Vocal Tuition


We offer high quality instrumental tuition in a range of styles and disciplines . All of our tutors are CRB cleared and professional performing musicians. Our tutors are excellent teachers and passionate about sharing their skills with young people.

Tuition is offered in a range of instruments including: Strings, Brass, Woodwind, Vocal, Keyboard/Piano, Guitar, Bass and Percussion.

We choose our tutors carefully and our expert team of musical directors and artistic managers will work alongside your school to identify clearly the needs of your music department and your students. Based on this evaluation and appraisal we will suggest a team of tutors to deliver the programme in your school. A dedicated artistic manager will be allocated to your school who will regularly liaise with the tutors team and your music department to insure that targets are being met and tutors are working together to produce top quality ensembles and pupil collaborations.

As a Social Enterprise we make sure any profits generated from our music services are invested directly back into the provision in your school and the local community. The more investors we have on board in the local area the more of our profits will be ploughed back into music development in your local network of schools.

For example a 12 month contract with one tutor, for one day per week may pay for some new guitars, an afterschool’s club or a new set of African percussion instruments for your music department.

Why are we different?

We consider your school to be a partner and investor not a consumer! This promotes healthy partnership working and long term relationships on mutually agreed terms. We will develop and expand your provision together not just give you an ‘off the shelf’ package.

Music services traditionally are larger council lead organisations offering services in hundreds of schools throughout a region. This had made it impossible for many of these organisations to offer completely bespoke and tailored music services in schools.

We have developed our music service business model from the ground up in response to areas of development identified by our network of partner schools across the UK. This has enabled us to develop an approach that is completely bespoke catering for the needs of your school AND the wider community in the local area through social enterprise investment models, positive partnership working and friendships.

When you contract Bangdrum CIC to provide music services you not only get the very best tutors in the area but also a dedicated manager working specifically with your school and tutors team to look after your provision in collaboration with you.

We will continually monitor the level of tuition offered and if it’s not working find out why and change it! Maybe your pupils want to learn a piano concerto, Beyoncé’s latest hits or the soundtrack form the latest Bollywood movie. Our initial appraisal and on-going evaluation methods with identify this clearly and our tutors will adapt accordingly keeping up with the ‘culture’ and needs of you school.

What’s the cost?

Our services are completely bespoke.

We recognise that each school has different needs.

These may be more or less hours, musical instruments or specialist support. We will identify the needs of your music service clearly and based on this research develop an action plan tailored to your school.

Each contract is budgeted from scratch and based on the number of management hours needed per contract, plus the number of tutors hours plus any additional equipment / investment costs.

This formula allows us to offer the best deal for you school. Prices range from £26 – £46.50 per hour with an average cost of around £30 per hour inclusive of instruments for your department you can keep!
