Henley Music School can offer individual lessons in any instrument. 


We generally offer 10 half hour lessons a term, but we adapt the length of lesson to the individual. 

We understand that music lessons can appear expensive, so we do have a range of bursaries and scholarships available.

We also loan instruments free of charge for a period of time.


Don't forget we offer up to 100% bursaries on all things H.M.S just ask.
