SMS Online Resources

 

Dear Parents/Carers,
We hope this finds you well in these extraordinary times and that you are doing your best to stay safe and well.
With the novelty of school closures wearing thin on our pupils/children we are delighted to announce the arrival of our online resources for all our music students and the wider community.
Please click on the online resources tab. 
Here you will finds lots of different musical activities to get involved in.
At the top of the page you will find a link to our You Tube Tuition channel where pupils can play along or learn to play different pieces with some of the SMS staff. (Please be aware this will continue to grow as time goes on)
Underneath this tab you will find resources for the different instrument groups, just click on the relevant link and it will take you to the instrument page. There you will find some links to online music sessions or further links to specific levels for particular instruments. If you are involved in the Whole Class Ensemble Tuition programme there is also material for you to practice.
At the bottom of the opening page you will find links to classroom based lessons – which we hope is something the whole family can get involved with. This will develop further as we add more resources in partnership with our schools.
The whole website is live and we will continue to add and develop it further over the coming weeks and months to make sure our young musicians get get the most from it.
We will send out regular tweets via @musicsolihull as we add further resources. (Please make sure you are following us!)
Please encourage your children to practise at least half an hour every day. There is also the fantastic opportunity to learn together as a family, as we are all stuck at home at this present time. We hope that every family will learn a song to sing per week as we know that will spread at little happiness. (Backing tracks for songs can be found under our vocal lesson tab)
Please keep checking back to the website and twitter feed as we will continue to update you.
Get those instruments out…….sing out loud……stay safe and look after each other.
We hoped you enjoyed Solihull’s involvement in the Big Play Day on Friday 27th March. If you missed any of it you can find performance’s here.
Best wishes
SMS Staff
