    Frequently Asked Questions

    Shown below are the most frequently asked questions by students and parents.
    How can I sign my child up for instrumental/LAMDA lessons?

    If you wish for your child to take instrumental lessons or LAMDA lessons in College, please email instrumentalteam@emmanuelctc.org.uk or LAMDAteam@emmanuelctc.org.uk and a member of the team will respond within 5 working days with further information regarding lessons.

    What happens if instrumental/ LAMDA lessons are cancelled, or my child misses a lesson?

    If an instrumental or LAMDA teacher misses a lesson, it will of course be re-arranged.

    If a student needs to re-arrange a lesson because of an exam, a school trip, or any other reason, they must let their teacher know the week before and the lesson will be re-arranged.

    If a student misses a lesson without notice, this lesson will not be arranged.

    How will I know how my child is progressing?

    Instrumental Lessons:

    • Each student receives a practice diary at the start of the year in their instrumental lessons. Parents can use the diary to check progress and to communicate with the Instrumental Teachers.
    • You will also receive a progress report in the spring term outlining your child’s effort, attitude, and development.
    • You can also contact your child’s teacher via the contact from on the left of this page.
