CSMC is back at Chiswick School! 

Chiswick Saturday Music Centre returned to providing face to face lessons at Chiswick School on Saturday, 18th September 2021. Our timetable for the academic year 2021/22 can be found by clicking here.

 

Throughout the Covid restrictions over the last 18 months, CSMC has continued to provide music lessons online, which has kept alive the spirit of Chiswick Saturday Music Centre. Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone - teachers, volunteers and students - who have helped over this hugely difficult period.

 

However, we are now delighted to report that we have been able to return to providing lessons in person at Chiswick School on Saturday mornings. This means that not only can we resume individual face to face lessons but that we can restart our groups playing together. 

This has only been possible due to the hard work of the members of the current CSMC Committee who have worked throughout to ensure that CSMC survived the tough times and was able to return when restrictions were lifted and it was once again safe to do so.

For a long time we feared that would not be possible as our finances were severely hit by the enforced lockdown. The good news is that CSMC has been able to obtain a small 'restart' grant from Hounslow Council, which was sufficient to get us back on our feet and on the road to becoming financially stable once again. 

 

We now urgently need more volunteers to help supervise activities on Saturday mornings and to help the Committee ensure the smooth running of CSMC. But more than anything we need more students.

We have vacancies across our timetable in many instruments including: guitar, bass, piano, singing, saxophone, flute, and percussion. If you would like to start or continue your musical journey, please drop us an email at info@chiswicksaturdaymusic.org.uk 

 

Students can be of any age or any level of musical ability from complete beginner upwards. Lessons comprise an individual face to face lesson in your chosen instrument lasting 20 or 30 minutes, or more if you choose, and includes the opportunity to join one or more of our groups and bands.

 

If you are able to help us in any way then please do what you can. You can contact us by email at info@chiswicksaturdaymusic.org.uk or you can help others experience the joy of learning and playing music by making a donation to CSMC by clicking on the link below.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
