Welcome to James Wolfe Primary School with Centre for the Deaf. Our school is located in the centre of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, only a short distance from the Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum.
We have a strong tradition of music education at James Wolfe. This includes our curriculum music lessons, our instrument lessons and our music groups.
If any parent would like their child to receive music lessons please compete a Music Sign Up form from the school office and we will add their name to our waiting lists.
We currently offer the following instrumental lessons:
The school provides guitars for the lesson and these are available to hire. If parents wish to buy a guitar then we recommend the "Valencia" Spanish guitar. We suggest parents go to a music shop to try the guitar with their child to make sure that they buy the correct size (as a guide 1/2 size for children up to 6 and 3/4 size for children over 6). If parents can not find a "Valencia" model then we suggest any Spanish guitar (one with a mix of metal any nylon strings).
The recommended book for years 1 to 3 having music lessons can be found at the following link: guitar book
