Here at Avonwood, we are pleased to offer a wide variety of peripatetic instrument lessons (peri lessons) for children in Key Stage 2. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to expand their music knowledge and learn a life-long skill. Learning an instrument improves several everyday key skills for children. For example: patience, responsibility, self-esteem, increases memory capacity as well as embeds key maths skills.
Peri lessons take place during the regular school day so please be aware that your child may miss part of a lesson. Priority afternoon lessons are given to Year 6 to ensure no core learning is missed and timetables change termly to ensure a child is not continuously missing the same part of their day. Due to popular demand, some peri teachers run lessons through lunchtime, however, lessons will never take up all your child’s lunch break.
