BREAKING NEWS! We are back on Friday 10th September 2021!

We are meeting again !

I am writing to you with the very pleasing news that MYMS will be returning to face to face ensemble activities from Friday 10th September. It has been very challenging to relaunch the music centre with so many changes and guidelines to work to and I thank you in advance for your patience whilst we try and re-establish and rebuild the centre.

Once you have registered I will then be in contact nearer the start date with any last minute updates and changes that appear. Please let any other players/singers know that might be interested in attending to register via this website.

It is essential that you complete the microsoft form found on the link HERE so I can start to put together door lists and registers to adhere to the strict guidelines that have been put in place by Invicta School to allow us to restart MYMS. 

I am really looking forward to welcoming centre members back again after such a long time and to finally meet players and parents that I have not already met face to face. There have been a few changes to the groups on offer and I have pleasure in listing all the activities with some additional information. 

Fees remain the same for the 2021-22 Academic Year (as in 2020-21) and allow you to attend as many ensembles as you like for this price. The fee for the year is £165 and we are currently working on a more flexible system for payment of this fee including termly payments. I will update you on this as soon as I have more confirmed information on how this will work.

You will note from the schedule below that there is now a massed choir in the hall for all members at 4.15pm. No previous experience is needed and I would like as many members as possible to join this group so we all come together each week for updates and an opportunity to all make music together in at least one ensemble.
