I have been teaching the cello for Moorlands Junior School since 2006 and the violin since 2009. Children are taught at Moorlands after 3:30 or in their own houses if within a reasonable distance from Moorlands. Every year I make some time available for the new violinists and cellists to have their lessons in groups at Moorlands – these lessons are charged at the group rate for one year only, regardless of how many children are in the group. After that children will generally be taught in pairs or in one-one lessons.
Moorlands School Orchestra has had a long and successful history over many years. I started helping with the orchestra in 2005 and took over as conductor in September 2013. Membership of the orchestra is by invitation at the beginning of the school year and is open to children from year 4 and above. The School Orchestra has had to be suspended from March 2020, whilst children were not in school or unable to mix.
Moorlands Music Makers
In September 2021 the School Orchestra was be replaced by Moorlands Music Makers, a mixed ability group aimed at all children, including beginners. Membership is still by invitation. If you would like your child to be considered, even if they have not yet started their lessons, please apply here. Rehearsals are on Fridays from 3:30-4:30 in the school hall.Apply to Music Makers
