You can now book instrumental lessons for your child online at Hertfordshire Music Service. Please go to Herts Music Service (HMS) for more information and details on how to enrol for lessons and payment.
All school instrumental lessons must now be booked directly with the Music Service, rather than through the school, with payment being made directly to the service, not Sir John Lawes School. The only exception is for drum lessons, as our drum teacher, Mr Smeethe, is not employed through Hertfordshire Music Service. Students will be timetabled by their teachers on a rotation through the school day as usual.
2021-2022 Academic Year
Music lessons must be applied/ reapplied for via HMS (apart from drums - direct to Music Faculty) by 1 September 2021. Lessons will begin week commencing 13 September 2021.
We are delighted that, following DFE guidelines, peripatetic music teachers are now permitted to resume face to face teaching in school. Peripetetic teachers will be expected to comply with the schools’ arrangements for managing and minimising risk and we will be following procedures within the music department to ensure the safety of teachers and students.
