Instrumental & Voice Lessons Terms with FAQs

When do lessons start?

The start date for lessons will be communicated to you within the lesson confirmation email. 

Does A-Star Music accept Music Tuition vouchers?

A-Star Music does not accept Music Tuition vouchers as these are issued by the Local Authority Music Services for use against the cost of their own lessons only.


Do I get credit or refund for a missed lesson?

If a pupil misses a lesson due to a school INSET day or because the teacher is not available, then this lesson is made up later in the term by crediting your account or rescheduling the lesson. If you think your child may have missed a lesson, please refer to the Online Music Portal, which is an area that records a log of each lesson held and is used for communication between teacher, pupil and parent.


There may be occasions when your child is unable to attend a lesson (for example sickness or family holidays), however, as these occasions are beyond our control we cannot offer any credit or refund. When a lesson is missed due to a school trip, this will be re-arranged if it is reasonable and feasible to do so (at the discretion of the instrumental teacher and within the constraints of the school timetable).

When and where do lessons take place?

Lessons take place weekly during the school day on school premises.


Do we provide group or individual lessons?

Due to social distancing guidance, we will not be offering group lessons until further notice.

Will an instrument be provided?

We have partnership with organisations who will provide hire and we sell a number of instruments on our online store.

Please contact us for more information.


Will learning an instrument help my child’s education?

Yes, very much so. There is an increasing body of evidence to suggest that children learning an instrument do better at school. Learning an instrument allows pupils to express themselves and grow in self-confidence whilst developing other skills such as hand and eye coordination, spatial and social skills, and self-reliance. They also develop better memories and are more likely to enjoy being at school.


Does A Star Music offer any other opportunities?

Regular workshops on various instruments are held throughout the year. There are also local concerts on offer for the children.


How do I apply for music lessons?

By completing the form on the A-Star Music Education website –


If I sign up and my child is placed the waiting list, what happens next?

After you apply for lessons your child may be placed on a waiting list if we are over subscribed. When a suitable lesson slot is available we will contact you with the lesson details and terms and conditions after which lessons can be set up and confirmation will be sent.


Will my child be able to take Grade exams?

A-Star Music pupils can be entered for grade examinations through Trinity Guildhall, ABRSM or RGT. Your child’s teacher will notify you when they are ready and provide you with the relevant information. We prefer to only enter a candidate when their playing is at a secure merit level.
