We’re really keen to start some more pupils on oboe and bassoon – we have instruments in the cupboard feeling unloved. Get in touch if you’d like to have a go or sign up for a trial.
A few places available for flute, oboe, bassoon, cornet, trombone/pbone, and French horn. Check here for information on minimum ages. We don’t hire guitars or keyboards, but we do have oboes, bassoons and French horns available to hire. Please note that you need to bring your own keyboard to the lessons.
If you’re interested in any of these, please Contact Us.
We’re keen to start some new initiatives so get in touch if any of these appeal:
- songwriting class
- Music Technology
- Jazz Technique
- advanced musicicianship
Drum kit and tuned percussion are full – how about the Latin Percussion Ensemble in the meantime?
Introduction to Music II (Year 1) is full for 2017 – 2018.
Many classes have waiting lists, but things change quickly so it’s always worth getting in touch.
We also welcome pupils who have their instrumental lessons elsewhere but would like to join one of our ensembles, the singing groups or the orchestra, or come to study theory. The Junior String Ensemble is for players of just pre-grade 1 to grade 2/3 and there is a Senior String Ensemble for players of grade 4 – 8. We could use a bassoon player in the Orchestra! The Jazz group is always keen to hear from good players who’d like to improve their improvisation skills. Ensembles.
Parents are also welcome to join the orchestra, especially if they play ‘endangered species’ instruments such as bassoon and French horn!
Please note that we do not offer piano lessons.
QYMC is held on Saturday mornings at Little Ealing Primary School in South Ealing.
