Dear students,
We have managed to keep our tuition prices at the same rates for the past four years. However, from November 1st 2014, the prices need to rise.

Music tuition rates do vary throughout the region, but it is apparent that some local teachers are charging up to £38.00 per hour long lesson during this academic year.

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

New Prices for November 2014 to July 2015.


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.

Autumn Term early payment discount

We are also offering a discount to all Harrogate Music School students on lessons taken between September 1st and December 19th 2014. To qualify for the discount, fees for the whole term need to be paid in full by midnight on 31st October 2014 at the new rate. The discount will consist of all the lessons being charged at the old lesson rate instead of using the new rate. Music School students not taking advantage of the early payment discount will be charged the old rate up until the end of October and the new lesson rate from then onwards. The discount will be shown on and deducted from the Spring term 2015 invoice.

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

All Harrogate Grammar School students that are currently studying GCSE Music, BTEC Level 3 Music or A Level Music are eligible for up to a 40% discount*. This is higher than the previous discount available.

*The discount is only applied to the first 30 minutes of each lesson at current HGS Encore rates. Please ask ABK for more details on this.

The discount lasts for the first 5 terms of each of the courses and goes towards the cost of instrumental or vocal lessons with Harrogate Music School or with the daytime Harrogate Grammar School Music Service Encore!
