The Ockendon Academy is proud to have a number of students receiving instrumental lessons currently. In order to make instrumental tuition more accessible to students and their families within our school community, we are pleased to announce a continued subsidy towards the price of instrumental lessons.
The majority of instrumental lessons at The Ockendon Academy are provided by visiting instructors from Thurrock Music Services and all instrumental lessons are taught on lesson withdrawal, i.e., children leave their timetabled class to attend their instrumental lesson, before they returned to class.
When students are ready, their instructor may recommend them to undertake graded examinations with ABRSM (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) or Trinity-Guildhall.
To supplement instrumental music lessons, students are encouraged to study music theory and join-in with extra-curricular activities at The Academy.
