St Teresa's Catholic Primary School


Clairmont Road, Colchester, Essex, CO3 9BE


We have tutors from Essex Music Services come into school and teach children to play the guitar, flute, oboe, violin, piano, keyboard, trumpet, clarinet and possibly other instruments.

These lessons are during the school day and are on a one-to-one basis for 15 minutes per session. There are 10 sessions per term at a charge of £70.00 per term. This amount should be paid on ParentPay once your child has had their first lesson each term.


Due to the Essex Music Service tutors’ time needing to be booked per term, we will need a full terms notice in writing to cancel lessons.


There is a voucher system run by Essex Music Services for people on certain benefits. Currently the vouchers are for £46.50 towards the cost of tuition. For further details please go to

There is also a Musical Instrument Hire scheme run by Essex Music Services, you can find the details from the above email address.
