St George’s School

We are incredibly privileged to be on the same site as St George’s School in Harpenden. Since moving to the site in 2000 we have built a strong relationship with this outstanding school that encourages all of their students to not just learn music but to be actively involved in orchestras and bands. The highlight of the year at St George’s is the House Music event that sees over 400 students taking part in House orchestras and choirs. In 2021, Musicale was thrilled to see nearly all of the House Music Individual Awards taken home by students who learnt through Musicale.

We teach 10 lessons a term for St George’s students onsite at Musicale. Lessons are on rotation so that the same school lessons are not missed each week. You will be assigned a tutor who will teach your child each week, encourage their playing, advance their skills and, if appropriate, enter them for graded exams. We have a parent portal, Teachworks, for which you will be given log in details to access times and dates of scheduled lessons and ensembles, lesson notes from the tutor and your family profile.

Tutors try to be flexible if they are given enough warning about a student’s future lesson absence. If your child has a sports match or academic test just let your music tutor know well in advance and they will arrange a suitable time for your child’s next lesson. However, if a student misses a lesson with no warning the lesson is usually forfeited. If a lesson is cancelled by the tutor or Musicale, the student will be given credit on their account or offered another lesson time that is mutually convenient. The school are given a weekly timetable that is put on their registration system which allows all the school teachers to see when a student has a music lesson at Musicale.

We also now have the option of online lessons for those unable to come to Musicale in person because of illness or study leave.

Lessons cost £283 per term. If a student learns two or more instruments at Musicale we will arrange for the second lesson to be at break, lunch or after school if there is availability.
