SATURDAY MUSIC SCHOOL (9–17 years)
What's it about?
Our Saturday Music School is for young musicians aged 9–17 who are interested in: exploring musical ideas, playing in bands and ensembles, learning music technology – and in making new friends.
Every Saturday morning during term time, young musicians can come along to Saturday Music School, a fun yet challenging programme of three hour-long sessions that are tailored to your abilities and interests. There are currently around 100 young musicians enrolled in Saturday Music School.
There are two routes for Saturday Music School:
Open Days for SMS Performance take place on 14 March and 16 May 2015, whereas SMS Tech applicants are invited in on an ad-hoc basis. Please use the online booking form to book your place.
SMS PLUS (14–17 years)
In addition to SMS Performance and SMS Tech, if you're aged 14-17 and already have some ensemble and playing experience, or if you've attended Saturday Music School, you may like to enrol on our SMS Plus programme, which helps support any work you might be doing in school or college.
