Polyphony

Extended Music Opportunities at Jersey College for Girls

In addition to the current instrumental tuition offered by the Jersey Music Service, the JCG Music department has developed Polyphony, an exciting initiative, offering instrumental, vocal and theory tuition to students across all key stages regardless of prior experience and ability. Polyphony is part of the JCG Foundation.

Currently we have a team of 15 experienced and inspiring teachers who offer high quality, specialist lessons in the following:-

Strings Violin, Viola and Cello
Guitar Accoustic and Electric Guitar
Woodwind Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Bassoon and Oboe
Brass Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn, Baritone, Cornet and Tuba
Voice Traditional Singing Lessons and Pop/Rock Singing
Piano For pleasure and/or with exams
Theory Fast track to Grade 5
Percussion Orchestral percussion

Organisation

  • Grades 1 to 7: a 30 minute individual lesson.
  • Grade 8: a 45 or 60 minute individual lesson (subject to agreement).
  • Lessons will operate on a rotating timetable for all year groups.

Charges

  • 30 minute individual lesson – £22.50 per lesson
  • 45 minute individual lesson – £34 per lesson
  • 60 minute individual lesson – £44 per lesson

How does it work?

At JCG, the Polyphony instrumental, vocal and theory tuition is based on weekly rotational timetables with lessons scheduled throughout the school day.  We recommend that no more than a total of 2 instrumental lessons are scheduled during the school day to avoid missing too many academic lessons.
