We raised £1642 at our Peace concert for Ukraine! What an amazing achievement with just 10 days of preparation!

We are so proud of all the pupils that took part and worked so hard. We had wonderful contributions - cello, violin, piano, vocals, poems - it was a truly moving concert.

Thank you everyone for your support and your generous donations.

Our autumn Solo concert was a huge success with all children having prepared their repertoire to the highest standard.

We had violinist, violists and pianists all playing repertoire from both the Suzuki books as well as additional pieces, from Baroque to dubstep.

Thank you to all the parents who helped with setting up the venue :-)

Thank you to everyone who came to the Birthday concert in October - and thank you for your generous donations to our chosen charities.

We thoroughly enjoyed playing and are immensely proud of the pupils who were selected to participate in this special event. It was a great treat to be performing the Vivaldi double concerto with a real Baroque ensemble!

The next lot of book recitals will be taking place after Easter at the end of the holidays.

We have a few pupils ready to show us their performances on both violin and piano - so this is very exciting!

It is always wonderful to witness these milestones of our young players as they continue their musical journey and a pleasure to listen to these performances

We had a blast at Streetly Methodist Church Eco Festival to kick off our autumn term ensemble playing.

We played a 30 minute set with an encore and were very lucky with the weather- beautiful sunshine making it a wonderful outdoor event!

The kids also learned lots from the exhibitions and stalls.

The adult June Solo Concert was a huge success - we were lucky to have the best weather so we could have a garden concert! The piano was set up outside and we all enjoyed a wonderful evening of duet and solo music with food, drinks and lovely company! Big thank you to Rowan for making Pimms from scratch!

We recently went to Tim Toft Violins again to purchase some more advanced instruments for some of our pupils. It is always a pleasure to be there and try the lovely violins and we came home with two beautifully sounding 4/4 violins and a fabulous 3/4 violin. We are also pleased that one 1/2 violin was passed on to another pupil to stay in the school!

The Scherzo workshop starts tomorrow in Bicester - how exciting after over two years of no workshops at all due to the pandemic.

There will be tonalisation, group lessons, masterclasses, musicianship, lunchtime concerts and much more. Lots of exciting repertoire to be played.
