Welcome Back – Summer 2021

Hi Everyone – Welcome back to the summer term 2021!

So, following the successful return of Saturday Music Centre (SMC) before half term, we would love to see pupils that play guitar (9.00am), electric guitar (10.00am), woodwind (10.40am), flutes (9.45am), ukulele(9.45am) and Brass (9.30am) come and join us at SMC.

Please be aware that if any of your pupils want to come and join any of the groups before the end of term you just need to email dfetherstone@solmus.solgrid.org.uk so we can plan for numbers. We really hope that we will see more students return to make some music over the rest of this term.

Please remember that pupils are to be dropped off as we are not allowed parents on site.  Pupils will need to sign in at the front desk, use the NHS Track & Trace App and wear masks whilst on site.  The front desk will be manned at all times and a sign will be displayed indicating what rooms are assign to what group, as set out below.   Please note staggered start and finish times and please do your best to adhere to them.  

SYMSA will be back serving refreshments this week and the times (for each group doing more than one session) to have a break are listed in brackets (Please stick to these times and brings some money with you!)
