Our Weekly Lessons programme delivers year-round music tuition for young people across Renfrewshire.
Due to ongoing restrictions, our Weekly Lessons are currently taking place online. We hope to deliver lessons in-person again from September 2021. You can register your interest using the form at the bottom of this page for our 2021/22 session starting September 2021.
Classes take place on Saturday mornings during term time at Castlehead High School in Paisley. We currently deliver tuition in accordion, fiddle and guitar with newstart places aimed at Primary 5 level. Don’t worry if you don’t have an instrument – we have a supply of instruments available for hire (click here to find out more). Participants wishing to learn guitar are required to supply their own instrument.
Although no experience is required, participants must have a willingness and desire to learn. All classes will be delivered in a group environment and participants will be expected to achieve weekly targets set by our team. Practise at home is an essential component of any musicians development and a commitment to this is essential for any applicants thinking of joining us. Practise diaries will be utilised to ensure clear targets and records of progress. Events will be held throughout the year to showcase the progress of our young people and give friends and family the opportunity to observe the progress being made.
Price per lesson = £6
- Term 1 (11 weeks) = £66
- Term 2 (11 weeks) = £66
- Term 3 (8 weeks) = £48
We work hard to keep access open to all young people and are fortunate to secure public funding to support our events. Places at our events are subsidised wherever possible with the true cost of each place being much higher.
Full payment for each term is payable in advance and is made through our website.
We have a limited number of fully funded places at our events for pupils entitled to free school meals or for families on low incomes (proof of confirmation required). Tick the relevant box on our application form to make an application to this scheme.
