These are the current costs of taking music lessons through DASP Music
(from April 2015):
*only available for beginners in first schools.
A group lesson is only available if there are enough other children of the same standard wishing to take lessons. If you are thinking about your child starting lessons and would like a group lesson, why not try asking other parents in your child's class or year whether they might like their children to learn too. Creating a group in this way would ensure that a group lesson would be possible.
For lessons which use Dorset Music Service staff (oboe and bassoon in all schools and brass with Kevin Penfold), the cost of lessons is more. Lessons may be subsidised in some schools to bring the cost down, but there is no guarantee of this. Costs are currently at £34 per hour, so a half hour individual lesson would cost £17.
