We are pleased to confirm that individual lesson prices have been held at 2019 rates until 2021.

Music tuition rates do vary throughout the region, but it is apparent that some local teachers are charging much more than this.

Ensemble rates for 2020/21 are £4.50 for Ready, Steady, Bow and All Strung Out and £6.00 for Strings 4 Starters, which includes instrument hire.

As usual we are offering several discounts. See below for details on how to achieve further discount on your Harrogate Music School lesson prices.

Prices from September 2020


There is a registration fee of £15.00 for all new students joining the music school. Make sure that you have the contact details of your teacher in case you need to notify them of an absence. We do ask that you give us 24 hours’ notice whenever possible.

Music Lesson discounts

Refer a friend discount

Again this year, each Music School member is eligible to receive a £5.00 discount on their music tuition invoice when they recommend a new pupil to the Music School who starts lessons with us. The more students you recommend to join us, the higher your discount. One £5.00 discount is available per student or family that joins. Make sure you tell the new students to state your name when they register. The discount does not apply to new students in the same family.

Harrogate Grammar School GCSE Music, A level Music & BTEC Music discount
