about us

Coronavirus, instrumental lessons and Ensembles

Some of our schools are now allowing us in to teach, so do check with your school and your instrumental teacher. Lessons may start in the next couple of weeks, and we anticipate that there may be bumps along the way. However, we now have a really good understanding of the technology for on line lessons, and should be able to move between these and face to face lessons as and when circumstances change.  We will make every effort to have continuity in the lessons, and have been excited and heartened by the commitment pupils have shown and the prgoress many have made through this diffiuclt time.

If you are new to us, and signing up for the first time, we may be able to start you off straight away, or you may join a waiting list. Once we are able to find you a teacher, that teacher will contact you with an offer. It may be lessons on line now, lessons in school, or it may be "when we can do face to face lessons, we'll start"

We are aiming to restart ensembles towards the end of September, or early in October. This will depend on safety, risk assessments by both ourselves and the school, and constant review of government guidelines. We will be contacting you shortly about these. We have taken on the responsibility of the Saturday Morning Music Centre, and once everything is allowed to run face to face, we will start to develop a long term plan so that people can have a membership that goes across Friday night and Saturday morning, should they so wish. This may turn out to be our ambition for Sept 2021!!  but we are planning for it!

We certainly intend music-making in Bedford to continue to thrive and will do everything we can to keep our members in touch.
