We also benefit from being part of the Ark Schools Network and their excellent network-wide music programme. Designed to foster a life-long love of music, the Ark Music Programme offers a wealth of experience for all pupils at all levels, including an annual Music Gala where pupils have the opportunity to perform at a national level.
Learning to play an instrument is a very rewarding process and studies have shown how those who do may have increased cognitive abilities and improved mental health. On top of this it opens new avenues for creativity and social interaction, as well as the satisfaction of developing a unique skill.
The instrumental programme at Elvin offers students the opportunity to learn to play an instrument from a professional musician, who visits the school once a week. The lessons typically take place during school time, with some lessons also taking place at lunch time and after school.
There is an option for an individual lesson (£18 per lesson) or a shared lesson (£9 per lesson).
We currently offer lessons for the following instruments:
