At Gladstone we offer music lessons through Cardiff and Vale Music Service to children in Years 3 to 6. In 2014/15 we will be offering violin & guitar. Peripatetic teachers come in once a week during the school day to teach the children in small groups. The children can work towards exams in their chosen instrument but this is by no means compulsory. It is always a pleasure to see the pupils simply enjoying playing short pieces in assemblies with their friends.
Lessons commence in September and run until July. We are only able to buy in this service for the whole academic year and so we ask parents to commit for the full three terms. The cost charged to the school is passed on directly to parents. We do not make any profit on this activity & endeavour to keep it as affordable as possible. Those in receipt of Free School Meals may be eligible for a bursary to assist with the cost of lessons. Please call into the School Office for details.
