We offer a range of lessons options and prices. Lessons can be provided individually, in pairs, or in groups of 3 or 4. Some instruments are only offered as individual lessons (e.g. drum kit and piano). Group lessons are dependent on the number of similar applications received and the availability of a suitable teaching space at the school. If there are not enough pupils to constitute a group, an individual option will be offered.


Lessons generally take place at school during the day. Alternatively, lessons may be arranged (by special request), after school, or at the teacher's home, subject to availability.


Swindon Music Co-operative aims to provide 34 lessons per academic year. This usually works out at 11 or 12 lessons per term, but may vary depending on the length of school terms. Payment for lessons is required in advance of each term.

Financial Support

Pupils who are in care or who are entitled to free school meals may be able to access financial assistance. Adult students must be in receipt of Income Support, JobSeekers' Allowance or Employment Support Allowance.  Please contact our office for further details.
