CORONAVIRUS

During these unprecedented times EYM sadly has no choice but to cancel all our classes until further notice.  We will keep in touch with parents of all current pupils and would be delighted to hear from anybody who would like to be added to our waiting lists for the future.

Group music-making is a wonderful thing, particularly in difficult times.  Whatever stage your children are at, we hope parents will find a way of helping them to continue to enjoy making music within the family.  This is a time to focus on what music is really for - to make us feel better.

All EYM instrumental teachers are offering short one-to-one on-line lessons to any of their pupils who would like this, either occasionally or regularly.

A couple of families have emailed to let us know what they've been doing.  

Louise says "While I have always known that music is fantastic, I have to say at the moment it's an absolute Godsend!  The house is full of music, the boys are far from bored, Matthew is writing a symphony (!), Callum is recording jazz (!!) and I'm getting a free concert every evening.  Brilliant!"

Jenny says "We are doing all sorts of music at home - violin duets, recorder duets, violin & recorder duets, vocal & instrumental stuff with Lance on piano, recording Lance's new compositions for church, etc, and I'm doing more piano practice than I have done in years!"

We'd love to hear from other families.

Some families may be interested in these various musical activities which are being offered on-line.
