Music Tuition

Dear Parent/Carer

Music tuition

Our popular choirs, orchestras and ensembles make a wonderful contribution to the life of the College.

Peripatetic instructors need to be booked a term in advance via Essex Music Services and in order to do this we need to know if your son/daughter would like to start with music tuition at St Benedict’s from January 2018.

Fees for the new academic year and will be as follows;

Weekly 15 minute lessons: £71.00 per term

Weekly 30 minute lessons: £142.00 per term

The peripatetic lessons at St Benedict’s Catholic College are run for the benefit of the students and are non-profit making and the hourly rate is set by Essex Music Services.

This fee covers 10 lessons per term. Lessons rotate every other week and any half hour lessons endeavour to straddle two different subjects, break or lunch. This ensures students do not come out of the same lesson each week.

If you would like to book music lessons for your son/daughter please complete the relevant sections of the enclosed booking form and sign ONE copy of the attached contract and return to the finance department by Friday 1st December 2017. Your child’s name will then be added to ParentPay and payment can then be made accordingly.

Please note spaces are limited and all lessons require payment in advance. Payment must be made via the ParentPay website ( The contract must be returned and payment made before a place can be confirmed.
