(*Free if attending a centre lesson UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2016 – A flat fee will then apply. It will still be the case that payment of one membership fee will entitle students to be part of as many SMS groups as they wish (apart from Childrens Chorus, SMC and String Chamber Groups)and we hope that for a charge of just over £3 per week this will remain very good value for money. )

1 Session £16.42 per term
2 Sessions £32.85 per term
3 Sessions £49.27 per term
4 Sessions £65.69 per term


SMC – Fee increase

On April 1st 2015 fees for SMC should have been ammended in accordance with Solihull Council Policy. For some reason this was over looked so the rate for the summer term stayed the same. However now the error has been noticed we are having to adjust the bills for he Autumn term 2015.

Please find the attached letter below outlining the changes in charging and I hope you will agree that SMC still offers fantastic value for money.


As always if you have any questions please come and talk to me at SMC.

Best wishes

The SMC Team
