October 2020 Excellent news for students and parents. We are now returning to the majority of our schools starting in November. A small number of schools cannot facilitate our staff returning just yet and these students will be contacted after half term. It is very important that everyone who is continuing lessons and may not have registered online also contact their school to ensure their instrumental lessons are timetabled and recommence ASAP
WCIT Lessons. Our staff are also returning to most schools who have booked Whole Class Instrumental teaching. Initially this will be a pre instrumental course until Christmas. We intend to be using instruments from January.
Music Service Groups/Orchestras etc. Because our members come from schools all over the city and many of our groups have large numbers of students, at the present time we will be continuing with our online activities until it is safe to meet together and rehearse. It is really important that parents of all existing members register online here if they have not already done so. Our coaches and conductors have already contacted those registered with information where to access music, videos, backings etc. and will keep in regular contact with members via parent’s e mails.
As quoted in a recent Black Country Arts communication “The Music Plays On at Wolverhampton Music Service ” – have a look at the newspage on this website to see the tremendous amount of work we continue to undertake to ensure we provide the best music education possible in these exceptional circumstances.
