Instrumental Lessons

COVID restrictions dictate that no lessons can take place onsite until further notice. Our teachers are giving lessons online; please note that their term dates may differ from CMA at this time.

We hope to return to normal as soon as possible, and are maintaining a waiting list for the Find Your Forte programme described below.

Find Your Forte!

Starting out on a new instrument is such an exciting time for a child, but to parents it can feel uncertain and costly. Find Your Forte takes the risk out of the process, providing subsidised group instrumental lessons for up to a year with FREE INSTRUMENT HIRE to keep the costs right down.

Group lessons are available for children in school year 3-6.

This is an AMAZING OPPORTUNITY for children taking up their first orchestral instrument.

(Members taking up a second orchestral instrument will pay only £60 per term for lessons in addition to their membership fee.)

Students will enjoy full membership benefits, including CMA activities such as Music Explorers, Choirs and Recorders. Please contact the office to sign up for this amazing opportunity, or for more information.

Stand out from the crowd

Ever thought about trying something a bit different? Are you looking for more opportunities to play? Players who have reached a good level on their chosen instrument often add a second string to their bow for interest and diversity once they are aged 11+.  Perhaps you are a flautist, singer or pianist looking for a new challenge such as playing bassoon, double bass or tuba? We have instruments available now.  Has one of them got your name on it? Please contact the office for more information.
