Welcome to Havering Virtual Music School
We hope this finds you safe and well.
We have our new Friday@Five Showcase concerts. We would love some students to sign up to performances every Friday on Zoom. Please get in touch if you would like to take part and we will send you the Zoom link.
Don’t panic about instruments. If your instrument needs repairing, we have a repairer for woodwind and brass instruments. Please get in touch with the music school for more details. We will endeavour to support any broken strings at the moment for a donation to our JustGiving page.
We are in the process of judging our Composition Competition and will hopefully be able to share the results of this next week.
Both Trinity and Associated Board are preparing online exams but full details are not available yet. We will review the situation when we have more information.
See our Art Competition page. We would like students to submit their drawings of animals playing instruments. We really want to decorate our wall at Havering Music School when we return.
Composition competition. Please see the attached flyer.
Get Into Music
Havering Music School believes instrumental lessons are only part of giving your child a rounded musical education. The additional skills learnt by regularly playing and performing in an ensemble, accompanied by theory/musicianship lessons, are proven to be the most effective method of speeding your child’s musical progress and development.
Weekday Music Centre is open at Havering Sixth Form College on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings in term-time. A limited number of instrumental lessons are available, but the main focus is on ensemble playing under the guidance of specialist tutors. Membership is open to children from Year 3 upwards.
Saturday morning music school (8.25am-12.35pm) caters for infants to sixth formers. A varied range of lessons and ensembles are available and students work to a timetable tailored to their individual needs, helping them reach the highest possible standard but with an emphasis on learning to play with other musicians.
