Please see below a copy of the email sent to Parents/Carers today outlining some important information regarding tuition, ensembles and hired instruments following the news of school closures.

18/03/2020

We've seen the news about school closures. We are planning out our response and hope to be in touch tomorrow with clear news about what will change in our services. Bear with us until then.

Junior Band, Junior Strings and Jazz Band will not run on Thursday 19 March.

17/03/2020

In response to government guidance it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the Soloists' Concert and the Chamber and Vocal Concert on Sunday 29 March.

We hope there will be other opportunities in the future to showcase the huge talent we have in the borough.

The box office is currently refunding tickets and will be in touch in due course, so it will help if ticketholders don't try to call in. They will contact you.

We have also taken the decision to postpone the music school auditions.

As long as schools still remain open, we will be running Saturday Music School and our other weekly ensembles as advertised on our website. We do ask that you do not attend if you are unwell, or if you are from one of the vulnerable groups identified in yesterday's statement (i.e. over 70 or with an underlying condition). Can we remind you too of the importance of children washing hands and not sharing instruments.

Thank you so much for your support.

The first few shots from our amazing Encore: A Celebration of Music concert at Cadogan Hall, in the presence of the Mayor of the London Borough of Hillingdon and supported by Arts Council England. What a great display of our borough's talent, with students involved from Training Band and Repertoire Strings right up to our most advanced students in Concert Band, String Sinfonia and Symphony Orchestra. We were also very sad to say goodbye to some amazingly talented students who are going on to new musical futures! Mr. Ide is shown here getting a bit of office work done (or was it a percussion part in 'Chess'?)

I have two tickets for Cadogan Hall on Saturday available if anyone needs any. They are senior citizen tickets but I have confirmed that you can pay the difference when you arrive for anyone less senior. I am not expecting anything for them...would just rather not see them go to waste.
Big Summer String Startup! Our project today involved over 75 young String players who started learning in the Autumn term of this academic year. It was a fabulous event, putting young people in Hillingdon on their first rung of the HMS musical ladder... their concentration, musicality and commitment was lovely to see... they had fun, and so did we! A last minute change of venue worked positively for us, and a big shout of thanks from me go to Lucy, Lee, Christian, James, Joshua, Christian B, Kevin, Christine and the fab Rob Haggar for all their hard work.... a fantastic team! 👏👏👏🎼🎻🎻🎻🎼👏👏👏
Hi, my son has come home with a request that I get the piano accompaniment for the tunes he's playing for grade 1 trombone - please could I have some guidance as to where to get them and what to get? thank you, Caron
