Music tuition

Music is a prominent part of life at the Archer Academy. We believe that it is important to have a wide range opportunities for all our students to foster their musical talents and enjoy the creative outlet that music provides.

As well as teaching music formally through our curriculum, we also offer provision for instrumental tuition through our partnership with the Barnet Education Arts Trust. Tuition is available for students individually, in pairs or in small groups, in the following instruments.

  • violin
  • cello
  • flute
  • clarinet
  • bassoon
  • saxophone
  • drumming
  • guitar (classical, folk, electric and bass)
  • piano
  • keyboard
  • trumpet

The cost for individual lessons is £195.00 for ten 30 minute lessons, £130.00 for ten 20 minute lessons, and £97.50 for ten 15 minute lessons.

Additionally, we have our own voice teacher who provides singing tuition on one afternoon per week. Our voice teacher also supports our students in preparation for school performances and productions.

Our enrichment programme provides our students with a range of other musical opportunities across the choral and instrumental spectrum. These include a choir, jazz band and orchestra and are all free of charge. Alongside these performance programmes we also offer composition, song writing and music theory.

We put on regular arts showcases during the year, giving students the chance to perform to an audience of parents, staff, governors and other community members.
