Information for Parents

We believe that parents can be a very important part of a child’s musical learning. The support and encouragement that a pupil receives from their parent or carer makes a huge difference and we are here to help…


EMS provides tuition in most Ealing schools. If you would like for your child to receive instrumental tuition from EMS, please ask at your child’s school which instruments are available. Small group lessons may be 20 or 30 minutes and are generally for up to four pupils. EMS provides 10 lessons per term (30 per year), and lessons will take place during term time. Schools charge parents directly and devise their own cost levels. Please ask your school for more details.

As a school service, EMS do not deliver music tuition outside of schools, except for leading various Ensembles. If you would like to engage a music teacher to come to your home or would like to learn as an adult, a good website to try is: Alternatively, adults can go to the adult learning part of the Ealing Borough website.

EMS are here to help when it comes to choosing which musical instrument a child might like to play. Visit our “Choose an Instrument” page
