Music Service 2021-2022
Please see the message below from the MTCBC Music Service for pupils who receive Peripatetic Music lessons in school and take part in the after school activities with the Music Service.
Instrumental and Vocal lessons with the Music Service
Throughout the pandemic our aim as a Music Service has been to keep our community making music by delivering music in a variety of ways because, as we know, it’s at times like this that we all need to keep playing instruments and singing for the benefit of our health and well-being. Instrumental and Vocal lessons with the Music Service’s Peripatetic Music Teachers are face to face across the county borough and online using Teams as part of a blended learning approach when required.
