Welcome to the new year (and some changes)

Dear All,
First things first, I hope everyone had a decent summer. We’re starting our term time offering again tomorrow.
The Music Makers sessions for this week will be as follows:

  • Monday 10th September 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Wednesday 12th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Thursday 13th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in the Youth Centre at St Clement’s

(For anyone who was new over the summer the term time sessions are smaller, one carpet instead of two, The Edge sessions are down stairs in studio 2, St Clement’s sessions are in the white building behind St C’s adjacent to the car park).

Changes to Pricing Structures:

As those of you who have been around for ages will know, I’m very keen to offer good value. Our prices haven’t shifted for over two years now. I’ve decided to bite the bullet and use the start of a new academic year to change both our prices and payment options. (It is my hope – although the whole Brexit situation makes things very hard to predict – that following on from this, our prices can remain static for a further sustained period).
The new pay on the door prices for this year will be:

  • £5 for the first child
  • £2.50 for additional siblings

We always offer a pay on the door option at all our sessions.
As of now we’re ditching the Termly subscriptions option, and switching to a discounted Block Booking System which will work as follows.
Each Block Booking is valid for six months. You pay in advance for ten sessions at a price of £42 for one child, £63 for two, £84 for three etc. This price offers a 16% discount compared with the on the door price.
When you do a block booking you can use your ten sessions at any Music Makers session, you’re not tied to a particular day or time. Also the ten sessions can be at any point in a six month period, (this usually means that you’ve got about 20 weeks of sessions to aim at, with 6 six individual sessions available in most weeks).

I hope that all makes some sense, I’ll have Block booking forms available as of Monday. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you all again.


Here we go again

Hello everyone,
I hope you’ve all survived half term ok. We made it through on a mix of sleep-overs and days out.
Because Easter is so early this year we’re going for a five week run through to the end of term. Paper copies of the subscription form will be around for the first couple of weeks.

Music Makers sessions for this week are as follows:

  • Monday 22nd February 9.30 to 10.30 in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Wednesday 24th 10.30 to 11.30 in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Thursday 25th 9.30 to 10.30 and 10.45 to 11.45 in the Youth Centre at St Clement’s

The only other thing I’d like to mention is a “rebranding” of Junior Choir into Junior Music Makers. This project has been evolving over through the course of the year and it’s turned out to be far more than just a choir. We’re actually building musical awareness with lots of rhythm, movement and musical play as well as singing. The actual age range seems to be from around three through to four. If you’d like more details please let me know.

We’re starting next week!

Dear all,
I hope everyone has had a good summer. Just back from our hols and since I’ve been asked the question four times today, I thought I’d just get out a quick message.
Music Makers Sessions will recommence next week. There’ll be sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. I’ll send out details in time for the weekend.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all again next week.
