Dear Parents/Students,

I hope this finds you safe, and well.

There is lots to tell you. Our Year 3 and 4 string players are getting ready for a free half term course of magic and fun.

Our Zoom concerts, Friday at five start again after half term and I know there are many of our students who are eager to play.

We have have many new online courses for you to be involved in during the winter months.

For adults we are planning a music appreciation class, ‘Coffee with a Composer’. Over a coffee and maybe a cake (or two), you can join us on Zoom to listen to music, share memories and meet new friends with teachers from Havering Music School.

We will also be starting a scheme to help adults brush up on old music making skills. Watch out for more information.

We have some very exciting news. ‘Future DJ’s’ who we have worked with before, have chosen Havering as a new London base and will be offering lessons in January to pupils. They will also be starting DJ Clubs.

Children in the borough will be able to join a school signing choir run by HMS with the help of Helen Andrews of the British Sign Language Society.

Phew. I think that is all for now.

Stay safe and well,

Karen Tweddle

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.
