Music Service update
Our WMS Home Concerts come to the end of their first cycle with our “On The Record Concert ” on Wednesday 17th June (6pm) We have invited young musicians in the city to submit recordings/videos of their own compositions/songs to share in this event. It should be an excellent showcase for talent in the City so do please join us on our You Tube channel for the premiere, you can also still watch our excellent student, teacher and Alumni concerts.
Our Youtube channel is being updated every Monday at 8am and is packed with over 200 music tutorials prepared by WMS to support our schools and students. Click here to access the channel. For resources to use at home visit our Corona virus page for lots of downloadable materials and links to other sites with resouces. Don’t forget to keep checking back as this resource is updated regularly.
We also have a number of ensemble pieces for students to play along with, including a new piece written for our string players (from Grade 1 – 8) called “Lockdown Strings” – again you can access videos via the YouTube channel and the parts here via our Corona Virus page or download everything here
