Handbook for Students and Parents | Carers


We are delighted that you are joining the Junior Conservatoire this year.

We believe that children and young people should have an opportunity to develop their musical potential within a friendly and supportive environment. We also believe that learning and teaching are best achieved in an atmosphere of mutual respect between all those involved.

These pages contain student versions of the various codes, rules and policies we have in place to achieve these goals.

They also contains some basic information about your course and the facilities that are available to you on Saturdays.

Because we work with students from the age of 4, this information is written in a way that the most students can understand. However, if you don’t understand the way something is written, ask a parent/carer to help, or ask us and we’ll talk it through with you.

We hope that you and your parents/carers find this booklet useful. If you would like further information or have a query or concern, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

On behalf of the Junior Conservatoire team, may I wish you every success with your musical studies.

Patricia Keir
Head of Junior Conservatoire
