Coronavirus and instrumental lessons

We have set up on line lessons for existing pupils, and our teacher members are using a variety of Zoom, Skype and Teams, according the internet strength at each end and their expertise. These are going well. it is a very different way of teaching but a lifeline to keep the continuity and progress. (Safeguarding)  (guidance for parents / carers)

If you are thinking of signing up for lessons, please do so. We will then ask the teachers of your instrument if they have capacity to take you on for on line lessons. It might be just what you need in these difficult and challenging times!

If you are looking for fun musical activities, or you were thinking of joining Saturday Morning Music Centre but can't at present, check out these two brilliant sites, provided by Music for Bedford Borough in co-operation with Bedford Music Coop and other partners in Bedford Music Hub. Lots of musical games, theory, musicianship, playing your instrument and maybe even starting to learn one.
