Booking for next half term opens today

We’re going to a six session timetable after half term. The session times are detailed on the Little Music Makers page.
We’re shifting away from every session having a pay on the door option. Half of the new timetable will be “Sign-Up” sessions. The split is as follows:
Sign- Up Sessions:
Monday 9.30 to 10.30, Wednesday 10.45 to 11.45 and Thursday 10.45 to 11.45 will be Sign-Up Sessions.
Pay on the Door Sessions:
Monday 10.45 to 11.45, Wednesday 9.30 to 10.30 and Thursday 9.30 to 10.30 will be Pay on the Door Sessions.
Why are we making these changes?
Over the course of the first half of this term, our Monday, Wednesday and 10.45 Thursday sessions have all ended up being jam packed on different occasions. We need to try and do something about the feast or famine nature of things, hence our new Sign-Up Sessions.
How will Sign-Up Sessions work?
They will have a restricted number of places available, allocated on a first come, first served basis, booking to open at 10am on Saturday 22nd October.
There are seven Music Maker weeks in the next half of this term. To secure a place for a Sign-Up Sessions you will need to pay up front for a certain number of sessions.

There will be two different models of payment for Sign-Up Sessions.
1) Minimum payment for five sessions in order to secure your place. (We will run a “register” sign in sheet at these sessions, if you come to more than five you will just pay for the extra two sessions on a weekly basis).
2) Alternatively, there will be a discount subscription offer for the whole seven sessions.
(Each Sign-Up Session will be limited to those on its register, but you will be able to attend Pay on the Door Sessions if you need to).
Pay on the Door Sessions will continue to operate as they do now.
We’ll be trying this new system out for at least two half term periods. I know that there are people who don’t mind a crowd but equally there are people who really don’t like it. I’m hoping that this new system will accommodate everybody’s preference.
There’s bound to be questions arising out of all this so please feel free to message/email/phone me if you have any queries.
Yours
Owen
