“The best way for your child to learn an instrument”
Thinking of getting your child instrumental lessons? STOP! Save money and make sure your child learns to think musically before they pick up an instrument with our Greenwich Young Musicians holistic music course.
We run children’s classes for 6-10 year olds, Tuesday evenings at 5:30pm, New Haddo Centre
We are now accepting places for our ‘band project’ in February and March 2018 for young instrumentalists. Call Laurence on 07817 769 029 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place!

Our music course
We offer the following instruments:
- Bass guitar
- Drum kit
During the Autumn and Spring terms we teach children core musicianship skills to help them develop their musicality. Then your child will get the opportunity to choose an instrument to learn in a smaller group during the Summer term.
See your child progress alongside their friends as group learning leads on to small-group instrumental tuition and ensemble classes. We provide a clear progression route that will lead your child through their entire school life with the option to take music exams, while also giving them long-term satisfaction through creative expression in music.
Watch the following videos to get an idea of how the first year of Greenwich Young Musicians works:
1st TERM: ‘RHYTHM’ – During the Autumn term, your child will learn about ‘Rhythm’ through fun musical games, African drumming, movement and singing.
2nd TERM: ‘MELODY’ – In the Spring term, we learn about ‘Melody’ through musical games, African flute, singing, reading music, African drumming, and get a first taste of piano, guitar and drum kit!
3rd TERM: ‘MEET YOUR INSTRUMENT’ – Children meet their specialist instrument, learning piano, guitar, bass guitar or drum kit in small groups of 2 or 3 children. Lessons are supported by practice videos in our ‘Members’ area, where all practice material can also be downloaded.
2nd YEAR: ‘INSTRUMENTAL LESSONS AND BAND PROJECTS’ – Children will continue to learn their specialist instrument of piano, guitar, bass guitar or drum kit in small groups. For parts of the year they will play in a band with other instrumentalists in our ‘band projects’.
See our curriculum for full details on what your child will learn.
