The Christchurch School of Music was established in 1955 by Robert Perks MBE, to provide an education in instrumental music for primary school students. Since then the school has extended its activities to include students of all ages and choral groups.
The School provides tuition in practical and theoretical music skills, and to provide opportunities for the study, practice, and performance of a wide range of music. CSM also presents concerts and recitals of instrumental and choral music, either alone or in co-operation with others. All students are expected to take part in group performances.
CSM also provides lessons over the internet for remote students and provides comprehensive music education to participating primary schools via its Outreach Music Service programme.
Please send us an email, or give us a call for any enquiries.
Tuition costs at CSM are kept more affordable, as parents help out with various tasks such as setting up for orchestra rehearsals, distributing and collecting music.
