Dear Parents/Students,

I hope this finds you safe, well and back in the swing and enjoying school life again.

We are resuming our online offer, and are delighted by the number of parents who have signed up. We have many new ways of engaging with learning through our online resources, and we are looking for some recordings that we will live stream for concerts after half term. We will start our Zoom concerts on Friday at five after half term.

We are planning  Christmas outdoor performance in a venue TBC… watch this space!

We have some new projects that are coming to Havering soon, and we are looking forward to these being offered online after half term.

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.


Music Centre

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.
