Has your child shown an interest in learning a musical instrument? Did you know that there is a way to access private lessons in school time? From Year 1 onwards, instrumental lessons can be undertaken by pupils.


A lot of William Alvey pupils currently take instrumental lessons with the following teachers;


Piano – Mrs Quarmby

Guitar – Mr Clark

Violin/Viola – Mr Rogers (Lincolnshire Music Service)

Flute, clarinet, saxophone and recorder – Mrs Carter (Lincolnshire Music Service)

Drumming – TBC if there is enough interest Years 3,4,5 and 6 only (Lincolnshire Music Service)


Currently our piano and guitar timetable is full, however there is a waiting list and lessons can be offered as soon as a space becomes available. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please email


If your child is interested in Lincolnshire Music Service tuition, please complete the attached form and submit it to them. This will in turn alert the school and timetables will be drawn up for lessons commencing in September.
