Merton Schools’ Survey 2022

We recognise that colleagues are busy at this time of year and really appreciate your support in completing this survey by Friday 15th July 2022.

Music Lessons at Your School
Access to instrumental tuition is transformative for children and young people. Music is both a skill and a passion and the cognitive benefits of learning an instrument are well documented.
Our friendly, professional tutors offer lessons in a wide-range of instruments, including brass (trumpet, cornet, French horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba), strings (violin, viola, cello, double bass), woodwind (flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone), percussion (drum kit, world percussion, orchestral percussion), piano, electric keyboard, recorder, guitar and voice.
Lessons take place in school, during the school day. The benefits of instrumental tuition are acknowledged to justify time out from other lessons. Our tutors are fully DBS checked and complete annual Safeguarding / Child Protection updates. They are carefully selected as highly skilled practitioners and educators and will work with your staff to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Contact us to arrange instrumental lessons at your school: firstname.lastname@example.org
Music Resources for Schools
We create, curate and signpost high quality resources and materials for school leaders and teachers to support the delivery of outstanding music lessons, clubs and ensembles. If you would like to discuss how we can support with planning for musical progression in your school, please contact us.
Every other year we take around 1,500 young singers and instrumentalists from Merton to perform at our Music is for Life concert at the Royal Albert Hall and in March 2019 we welcomed choirs from 19 Merton schools to perform in the Liquid History concert as part of a massed choir. Click here to see photos. Schools also signed-up for our Snap! photography project and Location Intonation, which will provided opportunities for choirs to perform around street pianos.
