Medway Council has a large variety of musical instruments which are made available for loan to pupils in Medway Schools. The majority of these instruments are loaned directly to schools for the Medway Wider Opportunities Music Scheme (which offers free tuition for a period of time).
However, some instruments are available, through Medway schools, for pupils wishing to continue beyond their first year of tuition, subject to availability. Medway Music Association also has some instruments which are administered through the Council, but please note that they are only available through schools.
Licensed Music Teachers
Medway Council administers the Licensed Music Teacher Scheme for peripatetic music tutors within Medway schools. The entire Medway Wider Opportunities Scheme is delivered by a highly skilled team of experienced LMTs, brokered by the Council. MMA works in partnership with both Medway Council and its LMTs to provide instrumental tuition and music performance events.
In order to be able to undertake music tuition in Medway Schools, tutors are required to register with Medway Council as a Licensed Music Teacher (LMT). This process involves a CRB check, child protection training and quality assurance.
To find out how to become a Licensed Music Teacher in Medway please contact Andrew Lane at Medway Council.
