Instrumental Tuition

At Amherst we support over 120 instrumental lessons each week and offer tuition on a range of instruments: clarinet, oboe, brass (including trumpet), piano, flute, recorder, fife, violin, cello, guitar, drums and singing. We are fortunate to have recruited some world-class music teachers and performers, most recently Andrew Harper (clarinet), Sarah Harper (piano and oboe), Ian Fasham (brass) and Eleanor Janes (singing). These teachers are among the top instrumentalists in the country, having played in film soundtracks, on BBC television and with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra and Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. We are incredibly proud of the quality of our peripatetic music teachers and hope our pupils will make the most of this opportunity to learn an instrument to a high level.
