Latest Important News
We have a new Keeping Active page here for instrumental students who have to study at home – follow this link. We also still have lots of resources and ideas for schools to use should students be sent home here on our Coronavirus Reources page. The majority of our Primary and Special schools (74 in total) also benefit from a subscription 100% funded by us to the complete Charanga Music curriculum which has an enormous amount of resources that can be assigned to pupils for remote learning via the YUMU facility.
November update! Excellent news for students and parents. We have now returned to work with the majority of our schools. A small number of schools cannot facilitate our staff returning just yet and your child’s school will inform them if this is the case. It is very important that everyone who is continuing lessons also contact their school to ensure their instrumental lessons are timetabled and recommence ASAP.
Register online: New Students and Existing Students should register their details HERE. You should only register if you have received a letter from your child’s Music Service teacher to do so. You do not need to register if you registered for online lessons in the first part of this year. If you are a parent/ guardian of a new student, you should read the following leaflet on beginning instrumental lessons with the Music Service.
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.
