Brass - We are delighted to inform you that a very experienced brass teacher called Lisa Price, has started teaching the trumpet at Gatehouse this term. She currently has two slots available on a Monday morning. Children need to be in year three or above and they need to have their front teeth to be able to learn the trumpet!


Piano - We have also been in contact with an experienced piano teacher called Hazel Robinson who is available to come to Gatehouse to teach your child/children. She comes with excellent references from students who have been really happy and successful learning the piano with Hazel.


Please give your details to Miss Rowsell  in reception and she will pass the information on to the music teachers.
