Saturday Morning Music Centre

Saturday Morning Music Centre

Saturday Morning Music Centre offers a range of different musical activities to choose from.

Learn to Play Groups

There are large groups, maximum of 12 pupils which run for 1 year. The intention is to give children an opportunity to try music-making through learning an instrument. If they enjoy it and wish to continue, the expectation is that they will sign up for individual or shared lessons in school or during twilight hours. The teachers at SMMC will be able to give more details on when and how to sign up.

Play Together 1 & 2 Groups

Play Together 1 groups are beginner ensembles for pupils who have been learning for around 1 year and are normally having lessons too.

Play Together 2 groups will be for pupils between Grade 1 and Grade 3 standards.

Rock Band

The Rock Band is for pupils who have been learning for at least 1 year and are normally having lessons too.

iPad Music and Songwriting

In iPad Music students are introduced to apps such as Garageband and Launchpad, using them to compose their own music. Songwriting explores writing songs with lyrics, melodies and chords. For Songwriting, some knowledge of notation and theory are desirable.

Choir and Musicianship

These are for everyone, regardless of what they play. Everyone can enjoy singing, and musicianship teaches you more about the music you play and how it all works!

Early Years Music

This is a group for building an enjoyment of music and some basic skills in singing, keeping a beat and playing lots of musical games.
