We believe that one-to-one tuition is crucial for the full development and confidence of young musicians. We are proud to provide individual singing, organ, piano and accordion lessons and strive to make tuition accessible at the point of need and have bursary options available for cases of financial hardship.

We are grateful to the Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation, Wade’s Charity and a number of other trusts that provide bursaries so that all talented children are able to receive lessons, irrespective of their financial circumstances.

Thanks to the enormous generosity of The Hamish Ogston Foundation the Keyboard Studies Programme is now expanding across the Diocese of Leeds. Find out more here.

‘We are so grateful for the additional support the Music Department has given to our son. He has never had singing lessons before and the difference these have made on his confidence is huge! He is now starting to take choir more seriously and would love to eventually be in the scholars’ choir.’

Choir Parent

Being part of the Cathedral Choir and Keyboard Studies Programme means a lot to me, and over the past three years I’ve gained a lot from being involved with them. I built up confidence in the recent conducting workshop, and I’ve been able to work better as part of a team with others. Most importantly I’ve been able to learn a new instrument through my organ lessons. Since primary school I have really enjoyed making music – the Keyboard Studies Programme has made me able to go further with music.’
