Hillingdon Music Hub Provision:

Brass and Woodwind lessons are provided by the Hillingdon Music Hub. You can register for lessons here:

Please note that the Hillingdon Music Hub is an external provider: any queries about lessons or payments (for Brass and Woodwind pupils) should be made by contacting the Hub directly and not by contacting the school. If you have any queries about signing up through ParentPay, please contact the school.

 

All Year 3 children will take part in whole class ensemble tuition and start to learn to play the clarineo, a plastic (slightly simpler) version of the clarinet. This is intended to be a gateway instrument; your child will learn a lot of the initial skills involved in playing a musical instrument, so if your child enjoys this process please seriously consider signing up for further music lessons (on any instrument) at any point during or after Year 3.

 

If you have any questions about music at Deanesfield, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
