The British School in Tokyo encourages students of all ages to be actively involved in developing their musical talents and interests and we believe that every student would benefit from, and has the right to receive quality instrumental music lessons. These lessons are provided through the school’s peripatetic instrumental music programme, for students from Year 1 upwards.
Please refer to the Peripatetic Instrumental Music Handbook for full details of the Instrumental Music Program at BST.
Primary School Campus
Lessons will take place as part of a rotational scheme during the school day. Lessons take place on the same day each week and are scheduled to ensure that no child will miss the same part of the class more than twice within the same term.
