KTB Music are Priory's peripatetic music tutors and, whilst they can't come into school at the moment, they are delivering one-to-one lessons remotely using Zoom. Lessons are held in the evenings or weekend.
KTB Music was founded to bring music to people from all walks of life. They are dedicated to bringing a better quality of musical life through education, entertainment, self-growth and self-confidence to communities by establishing strong relationships with both business and individuals. KTB Music at Priory has a loyal commitment to the development of each individual's musical skills whilst understanding each individual's needs. Encouragement to study for examinations will help pupils towards inspiring their own self-belief and creating and nurturing their own enthusiasm.
If pupils would like to take up an instrument, learn to sing or carry on from primary school, parents can email KTBMusicatpriory@outlook.com to request further details or go to www.ktbmusic.com to find out more. Pupils can see Mr Taylor, Lead Teacher for Music at Priory, for a chat and information booklet.
When KTB Music are able to return to offering private music tuition in school, pupils will come out of a timetabled class lesson on a rota basis so to minimise the disruption to their school lessons.

There are many different types of external examinations available. These are exams that would usually be scheduled throughout the school day, and take place in an external centre in Preston or Leyland.
These examinations are controlled by external exam boards such as the Association Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), London College of Music (LCM) or Trinity College. Therefore price for each grade will vary accordingly. If you would like more information don't hesitate to get in touch or you can visit each examination board individually.
