Welcome to 2022! We are back making music on January 8th.
Registration for the Spring Term is open!
We are in the process of reviewing our room allocations in light of current Covid risk, in order to allow for more space and ventilation where possible. Please check-in at the Front Desk when you arrive to confirm where you will be gathering.
AND do please take time to review our updated Covid safe guidelines.
Having held our membership fees at the same level since 2018, we have made some adjustments to the fee structure in order for us to a) align tutor fees with the Musician’s union rates, and b) enable us to offer a reduction in fee for under 18s.
The termly fees for 2021 - 2022 are:
Under 18s £30
with a charging cap at 3 children per family.
Please note new banking details for our online account (also to be found on the registration form).
By way of a reminder we will be at Fallibroome School now on a Saturday morning and look forward to seeing you all on 25th September. The business committee and all tutors will be on hand to point you in the right direction on arrival, as we all get used to our new surroundings!
As we continue to make all the necessary arrangements for our re-opening we are on the look out for volunteers who would be willing to help with the front desk and coffee shop on a Saturday morning. Any help, even if just for an hour, would be gratefully received. We have previously enjoyed the support of those participating in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, for which volunteering for us is recognised within the programme, so please do encourage any participants to consider joining the MMC team.
Please contact if you feel you could help.
In the meantime, please spread the word that we are re-opening. We are keen to welcome as many new members as we can.
Finally, as we all continue to work within Covid-19 regulations, MMC will be issuing a Covid protocol document prior to the start of term in order to ensure all members are able to meet in a safe environment.
You have told us how much you enjoyed our 12 days of Advent videos. These were prepared by our talented tutors and introduce 12 individual instruments. These are now available on our Youtube Channel here:
Enjoy - and watch out for more very soon.
For those of who missed our Advent Calendar here it is again:
