Our Services.

Host your own Saturday Morning Music Academy.

What do we offer?

You can unlock amazing out-of-hours learning opportunities by hosting your very own Saturday Morning Music Academy, in partnership with Learning Music.

And what’s more – by default we bill parents directly, meaning no charges to school for our services. We’re taking enquiries now for Music Academies launching September 2021 and January 2022.

The basics.

Each week, pupils enjoy a varied 3-hour programme, jam packed with practical music-making. They learn an instrument, play that instrument with others, and take part in a series of fantastic workshops – all led by outstanding professional musicians.

Every Music Academy is unique – but we normally lean towards either a classical or popular route; and cater either for ages 8-12 or 11-16.

Your Music Academy will be led on a week-to-week basis by a dedicated Lead Teacher or Head of Academy. They are supported by Learning Music’s back office team with input from our Managing Director.

Getting started.

We provide promotional materials for distribution to families. Just lend us your support and your building, and our specialists will take care of everything else.

We require 12 students on roll to launch each new Music Academy. You may wish to come together with your local family of schools or across a local academy trust to promote the Music Academy to a greater number of pupils.

Why choose this programme?

Music Academies provide a rich and immersive environment for keen musicians of all abilities.

They offer a broader range of musical experiences than is often available within school hours, and strongly support musical progression through primary and secondary – and for those who want to take their music further.

There is also significant social benefit for the young people involved – spending their Saturdays with like-minded musicians.

Sample Timetables.

Harry – age 11 – classical inspired route

9.30am – 10.15am: Musicianship Workshop
Harry starts his morning with Workshop, which he loves because it’s always something different! The theory class is useful and he’s really looking forward to creative composition next term. His favourite was the Taiko drumming in term 1.

10.15am – 11.00am: Instrumental Lesson
Harry selected the clarinet from the option list for beginner lessons, which he learns with four other students. He’s advancing rapidly and the group is always excited to learn a new note!

11.00am – 11.30am: Break
A well deserved rest – and a great opportunity to socialise and make friends with like-minded musicians.

11.30am – 12.30pm: Ensemble
The whole Music Academy comes together to form an orchestra. Harry decides to play the violin which he’s more advanced on having learned elsewhere, rather than the clarinet. He’s hoping to be the leader one day!

Jen – age 14 – popular inspired route

9.30am – 10.15am: Instrumental Lesson
Jen starts her morning in a small group with the other guitarists, working with the Learning Music specialist guitar tutor. She’s working on some pretty cool techniques.

10.15am – 11.00am: Musicianship Workshop
A chance to try something different and expand their skillsets. Jen’s enjoying the improvisation sessions and can’t wait to have a go at songwriting next term!

11.00am – 11.30am: Break
A well deserved rest – and a great opportunity to socialise and make friends with like-minded musicians.

11.30am – 12.30pm: Ensemble
Jen’s favourite part of the morning – time to rock out! They play in real bands with an informal yet purposeful learning environment, with expert coaching throughout.
