Visiting Music Teachers

Danesfield is privileged to benefit from the services of a dedicated team of visiting music teachers. Pupils are withdrawn from class for lessons on a number of instruments and singing. The time table is organised to ensure that children are not always missing the same lessons.

If you would like further information regarding this then please contact the school office.
