We hope you and your families are safe and well in these challenging times. Following a lot of questions from our community, we have provided some advice regarding cleaning instructions for our instruments.
We are also making additional mouthpieces available free of charge for schools, so that every child in a class has access to their own mouthpiece. Please contact Kate by clicking on the button below for more information.
Our team are looking at ways in which we can support children, parents and teachers by providing free online resources, please see the links below for more information.
We have also set up an online music festival as we wanted to provide an opportunity for children to perform their music to an audience, even if it's only a virtual one, and know that their hard work will be listened to, appreciated and recognised! We don't mind what they play, just that they enjoy making music. Click on the button below to find out more.
As musicians, teachers and parents ourselves we are thinking about you, your families, friends and colleagues and we’ll do everything we can to be supportive.
