Lessons take place during the school day on a rotational basis, so that students do not miss the same lesson each week.

If you are interested in these lessons or wish to request a place, please contact us using the details at the bottom of this page or through our Contact page.
There is also a school orchestra which meets once per week and performs concerts a few times each year.
Next Term - Spring 2019
Next term, lessons start from Tuesday 11th January.
Other Possible Lessons
If you are interested in lessons in other instruments then please let us know. If there is sufficient interest then we may also be able to provide additional lessons, particularly in any of the following:
- Year 4+:
- Brass (Trumpet/Trombone/etc)
Violin lessons are also available through the school (separate from SAMA). There are also (non-SAMA) after-school lessons available in Guitar/Drums/Rock&Pop Singing. Music can help and inspire children of all ages, so we would always encourage your children to seek out whichever lessons appeal to them the most and are available for their year group. Any music education will help your child even if they change instruments or focus at a later stage.
We offer an affordable instrument hire scheme, which enables students to try out their chosen instrument for a term or two before making a decision to buy. More details are on our Instrument Hire page.
Other Events and Activities
At SAMA, we like to involve our students in a wide variety of musical opportunities and experiences. We hope to offer events such as end-of-term or end-of-year concerts which all our students can get involved with if they wish. These are very informal and friendly events which provide a platform for our musicians to gain confidence performing in public, whilst learning from each other. Friends and families of performers are all welcome to attend and there will be an opportunity to catch up with friends and to meet new people in your community during the interval. If you would like to perform a short piece in our next concert, please speak to your teacher.
