The choir will be run by the Head of Music at St George's, Cat Vernon in the brand new Music Department buildings.

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.

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)

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.
