At Heartlands there are many opportunities for students to get involved with music, ranging  from after-school enrichment activities, one-to-one instrumental tuition and a number of performance events throughout the school year.

Learning an instrument at Heartlands

We work with Haringey Music Service to provide instrumental lessons from qualified and experienced tutors. There is the opportunity to continue lessons from primary school or start as a beginner. Lessons take place during the school day in our practice rooms and prices are competitive in comparison to private music tuition. Lessons are paid online through Parent Pay. Discounts are available for GCSE Music and Free School Meal students.

If your child does not own an instrument to practise on at home then instruments can be loaned from the music department at Heartlands or the Haringey Music Service (Visit the Haringey Council website for more information)/.

If you are in Year 7 you can apply to become a Music Scholar via this google form ( More information can be found below.

We offer tuition on the following instruments: Violin, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Voice, Piano, Drumkit, Guitar (electric/bass/acoustic).

Music Scholarship Program

We launched our Music Scholar programme last year, designed to widen participation in music. We have been supported by a grant from Restore The Music which has enabled us to buy enough musical instruments that every Music Scholar will be able to have an instrument to support their independent practice at home as well as heavily subsidise the cost of lessons.

The scholarship program is open to new year 7 students with the option of continuing into year 8.

If your child is interested in joining the program please complete the google form at your earliest convenience. 

After school clubs

There are lots of after school clubs that students can join. From Choir to band practice, brass ensembles to music producers. There is something on every day to enrich students’ music experience. An updated list of music clubs for students can be found on the Music Notice board on the N5 corridor. 

In addition to their lessons, these students access a range of extra-curricular music opportunities which have included performing in the Royal Albert Hall, participating in the annual Whole School Musical and performing in events such as Battle of the Bands.
