Autumn 2021



Dear Year 5 parents and carers


Year 5 children are being offered the opportunity to have violin lessons, subsidised by Torbay and South Devon Music Hubs, at the cost to parents of £11.00 for the whole autumn term of 10 lessons.  We have secured a great violin teacher called Ric Hollingbery and would like to offer you the chance to apply for a place for your child. Violins will be provided.


We are asking you and your child to explain how you would make the most of this opportunity - it is open to any child who does not already have lessons on an instrument, with a view that they will continue to learn in the spring term - with parents and carers taking on the cost of group lessons which will rise to approximately £3.40 per lesson if we have groups of 5 pupils.


If you are interested, please complete the following Google form: and submit it by Wednesday 22 September. We will contact you on Friday 24 September to let you know if your expression of interest has been successful.


Should there be a high numbers of requests, places will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.


We aim start lessons in school from w/c Monday 27 September 2021.
