Kew Young Musicians
On Saturday mornings in term-time Queen’s School is alive with the sound of music. Lessons in recorder, singing, drums, flute, clarinet, saxophone, classical guitar, bass & electric guitar are available. We also have a sax group.
The KYM musical journey is for children aged from 5 to 18 - everyone is welcome, you don't have to attend Queen's School. Here’s what you can learn.
Recorder (from reception – a great instrument in its own right and a stepping stone to other woodwind)
Singing (from year 2 - this is vocal tuition)
Drums (from year 1 – good for developing a sense of rhythm)
Flute (from year 3 – curved headjoints are available for people with little arms …..)
Clarinet (from year 3 – if you have your second front teeth and are quite big and strong!)
Saxophone (from year 4 – if you have your second front teeth and the alto sax is even bigger and heavier!)
Classical guitar (from year 3)
Electric guitars (from year 3)
Most KYM classes are shared – often between two children - and fees depend on how many children learn together. Group teaching works well for recorder and singing, so there may be a few more children in a class. The fees reflect this – a single lesson is £15, duos £8, trios £7, quartets £6 and bigger groups are £5 per child for a half-hour lesson.
Please note that KYM is a not-for-profit organisation entirely run by volunteers – so we do ask you to pay fees promptly. We know that weekends are very busy, and sometimes children wish to change or stop instrumental tuition - so you can give us notice, at any time up to half-term, that you wish to stop lessons at the end of that term. This gives children on the waiting list the opportunity to take part. Highlights of the KYM calendar are the Christmas and Summer concerts – so please do join our friendly and creative music school!
