Instrumental Lessons

Alton College has a large team of instrumental teachers providing tuition on a wide range of instruments. If you are a studying a Music course with a performance module, then you will get instrumental lessons on one instrument free of charge.

If you are studying A Level Music, BTEC Extended Diploma in Music Technology, BTEC Jazz, BTEC Rock & Popular Music, BTEC Extended Diploma in Performing Arts, please register for your free lessons on one instrument here.
