We offer the best PPA cover available in the London and surrounding areas. Our exceptional tutors are matched by personality to your classroom needs and preferred teaching style. They are then provided with thorough lesson plans that accompany the national curriculum, along with assessment forms to help monitor the daily progress of your pupils. Not only can we deliver music as part of the national curriculum, but we can also tailor our provision to suit your specific needs such as incorporating any of our other services into your PPA cover.
Our workshops offer students the chance to experience top of the line musical education in the format of a one time workshop, that is flexible to fit the needs of any classroom, and can work around the schedule of your educational facility.
We tailor our workshops for all ages, as well as differing levels of skill and experience, ensuring every student leaves the session feeling inspired and accomplished. Whether you book a Teach Major workshop as a one-off experience or as a regular part of your music provision, we endeavour to align our efforts with yours and tie in the topics you are currently covering in class.
Big Voice Workshop
For the students with dreams of being the next superstar, they can exercise their lungs and learn new songs and techniques at the Big Voice Workshop. Our staff have tonnes of experience in the modern music industry and can coach students to reach their full vocal potential.
We’re bringing elements of one of the West End’s best-loved shows to a classroom near you. Students will learn to tap basic and complex rhythms using different body parts and every day objects. Not only is this a great way to improve understanding of rhythm, but it makes for a really great work out too!
We are in partnership with Resonate Drum Workshops who facilitate high-energy and engaging percussion workshops that are individually tailored to meet the needs of participants of all ages and abilities.
All of our workshops are available up to a highly advanced level for more experienced pupils and teachers. We also offer them as fun, team building exercises for all staff, regardless of musical ability. We love thinking outside of the box, so get in touch and let’s discuss a bespoke package that’s right for you.
Our breakfast, lunch, and after-school clubs make life more manageable for parents with tricky schedules while giving your students the opportunity to relax with their friends in a fun and educational environment. These sessions take the form of group instrumental tuition and choir clubs which can be organised independently or added to your existing PPA cover. We can also advise on how to subsidise these services, through non-pushy, parent-funded strategies.
Whole Class Tuition
Encourage your pupils discover the fun of learning an instrument with our whole class tuition sessions. We offer a range of lessons utilising simple introductory instruments, including the recorder, ukulele, guitar, violin and samba / African drumming. Pupils will learn the importance of team work and supporting each other as they progress together, making this a firm favourite with teachers who are looking to build class morale. This is an excellent way to supplement the national curriculum and ensure your pupils are all learning to read music.
Our students are growing musically from Teach Major’s tuition and subject specialism, but our staff and administrators also benefitting from the timetabling and instructional support. On top of all that, access to Teach Major’s resources allows us at Lake Farm Park Academy to provide increased extracurricular clubs to our students, encouraging them to get involved with the arts in different ways through new environments.
Learning a musical instrument is a life-changing experience – one that requires passion, discipline, and perseverance. The right music teacher can inspire the next generation of musicians, whilst the wrong one could put kids off for life.
As musicians ourselves, we truly value the importance of consistency in one-to-one tuition. By booking your peripatetic music teachers through us, you’re guaranteeing a higher quality of education thanks to our rigorous vetting procedure. You also ensure continuity if your assigned tutor leaves, as we will find the best instructor for your school’s specific needs.
Music Production and Recording
Have you ever been so proud of your pupils’ musical performance that you wish you could listen to it forever? We can help with that! Teach Major will provide a professional sound engineer, well suited to working within a school environment, who will record a live group, vocal performance – such as a choir, various ensembles or concert. This will then be mixed and mastered to perfection, and returned to you in digital format for you to distribute as you see fit*. It’s a great way to fundraise by selling copies of the recording, or can serve as an excellent commemorative gift to accompany a holiday or end of year performance.
Depending on the number of recordings you wish to have, we have bronze, silver and gold packages that are tailored to suit your affordability. Get in touch with us to discuss our packages and pricing.
*Teach Major will ask you for a list of the songs you wish to record (including details of which version, if recorded by multiple artists), in advance, so that we can acquire the relevant publishing and distribution rights on your behalf. There will be a small surcharge to cover this cost, though you can get an estimate by contacting us directly prior to booking our services. We do this to ensure that all parties involved are acting within the realms of music copyright law.
Teach Major believes that all pupils should be exposed to music. This is why we have trained music therapists who work closely with pupils with Special Educational Needs and can deliver music appreciation sessions that is tailored to their needs. Our therapists are professional, sensitive and passionate and will ensure all pupils under their care can excel and express themselves through the power of music.
Teach Major worked hard to create a tuition package that suited our school and the needs of our pupils. The tutor you provided for us is a great fit for the way our school works, and the fact that the vast majority of parents have chosen to continue the music tuition after the initial term is a testament to the fact that they feel their children are benefitting from it.
Gigs For Schools
Have your pupils experience live music as a part of their regular school day. This unique opportunity will put a band of experienced musicians in front of your class as they perform a thoughtfully selected and carefully arranged selection of favourite songs.
Each performance is 45 minutes long and can be scheduled up to three times throughout the school day. We’ll provide everything you need, from the artists themselves to the tech and expertise required to make it all happen.

Gigs for Schools will help your school by providing all communication to promote your performance. Targeted correctly, you can make all moneys back, plus more, by teaching kids – you gotta pay for talent!
Each program is designed to allow your school to take advantage of it’s fully functional venue capability: your very own assembly hall! Our presentation’s unique pricing structure means the more pupils who attend, the more money going back to your school to invest as you see fit – a true win-win for everybody!
Teach Major Holiday Camps
The music doesn’t need to stop when school does! Teach Major provide a range of exciting Performing Arts Camps outside of term time.
For schools wanting to enrich your local community with an effective and interactive method of childcare for parents, please get in touch to discuss how you can be a Teach Major hub school for our Holiday Camps.
Teach Major’s music curriculum was created to be outstanding as a stand-alone syllabus, but we recognise the value of cross-curricular learning. This is why we are offering schools the opportunity to have our schemes of work re-written, so they are bespoke and correlate to the school’s own cross-curricular themes and topics.
Rhythm & Bounce
This six-week syllabus was designed by our expert musicians alongside our equally brilliant partners, Get Active Sports, to combine PE and music in an energetic explosion of fun learning. Rhythm and Bounce gets children moving, burning off any excess energy and staying fit and healthy, while also learning fundamental music concepts, such as rhythm and tempo. For existing clients with PPA cover, this six-week course can replace certain half terms (dependent on year group). For clients who do not have PPA cover, this syllabus can be purchased as a one-off.
