Music Tuition

Learning to play an instrument or to sing is a hugely rewarding thing to do and can give years of enjoyment. We offer a variety of music tuition at South Wonston School with various concerts and performances taking place throughout the academic year.

Lessons are taught during the school day as a small group or, if requested and accommodated, can be taught on a 1:1 basis. Lessons are either taught in the Church area of the school or in the Shared Social Room (SSA - opposite the school office).

Internal Music Tuition


Mrs Hyland from Hampshire Music Services comes to school each week to deliver Violin tuition.  Mrs Hyland is a qualified Violin Peripatetic Music Teacher.  Instruments can either be purchased outright (once the size has been determined) or can be loaned from Hampshire Music Service (see below).  Instruments must be brought into school each week.
