There is no Music School this weekend or next. See Full Calendar for dates of all sessions and events.
Music School will be having an Open Morning on Saturday 18th May. Members are encouraged to invite one or more friends who don’t currently attend to come along and see the fun we have. Free tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits available,
Last Sunday’s STOMP workshops were well attended and much enjoyed by participants and audience at the end of the sessions alike. 40 younger students in the morning and 14 older ones in the afternoon learnt how to use their bodies and tin cans to make rhythm together. Along with 3 staff members and the Friends helper we had up to 88 cans being bashed together in unison. It was quite a noise! At the end of each session we were treated to performances from 4 groups… and then it was the turn of the audience. Great fun! Some photos and video clips are available on request. Email John for details.
From this week Ceilidh Band have moved from Tuesday Evenings to Saturday Mornings at 09:00. New players welcome! If you can read music and play strings, guitar, ukelele, mandolin, whistle or flute and would be interested in discovering the world of folk music why not come and join in? (Membership of Suffolk Youth Music is required). Any enquiries to 01284 723105.
Saturday Morning students were given a Music School newsletter yesterday, with information about how to find out whether Music School will be running in bad weather, a reminder about signing in, what to do if a student can’t attend, news of the Friends and a reminder about the STOMP-style Percussion Workshops. You can view the newsletter Here. There is also a new brochure from Suffolk County Council describing all the Suffolk Youth Music activities in West Suffolk, which you can see Here.
Great news! Thanks to funds we have raised, BCMS has been able to organise some Percussion Workshops on Sunday 28th April. You can find all the details Here.
Be sure to apply for places for your youngsters soon, as availability is limited. Application forms are available from tutors/ensemble leaders and should be returned to them as soon as possible.
Oh. And if you’ve never heard or seen of STOMP, you can find some links Here.
