LOVE MUSIC ?   So do we - come and join us !
ALL children in or around Enfield and North London are welcome

The Latymer Saturday Music Centre is an independent Music Centre which is open to ALL children from reception year upwards. Activities take place at The Latymer School (www.latymer.co.uk), Edmonton, on Saturday mornings, during term time.

Since it was founded in 1994, hundreds of children in and around Enfield and North London have benefited from the music education it provides.

We are now on our Easter break until the start of Summer term on Saturday 26 April, but enquiries are always welcome.


MUSICIANSHIP CLASSES

4-11 year olds, Reception Class to Year 6.

These classes aim to develop musicianship through a variety of musical games and activities. Emphasis is given to the acquisition of aural skills, musical literacy and co-ordination, which are so important for learning to play a musical instrument.

Children in the infant age-range attend these classes before the commencement of instrumental tuition, and continue with them for a period afterwards.


INSTRUMENTAL TUITION

6-18 year olds, Years 2-13

Lessons are available from a team of highly qualified specialist teachers on the following instruments:

Tuition on other instruments can be arranged where there is sufficient demand. Advice is given on children's suitablility or readiness to play a particular instrument.

Instrument lessons are normally offered to children from Year 2 upwards, but for younger children only certain instruments are recommended.

Music theory lessons are also available.


DEMONSTRATION CONCERT

This takes place annually and gives parents and children an opportunity to hear, see and try out the instruments which are offered and also to meet some of the teachers !

We had this year's Instrumental Demonstration Concert earlier in April, but there will be another one next year and newcomers will be welcome.


ENSEMBLES

The Centre provides ensembles for strings, recorders, harps and has a flute choir. These provide valuable experience in playing a musical instrument with others.


EXAMINATIONS

Associated Board and Trinity Guildhall graded examinations can be taken when appropriate. The Centre enters a large number of candidates at regular intervals with excellent results.


PUPILS' CONCERTS

There are regular opportunities to perform at concerts, both formal and informal. These help teachers to monitor progress, while giving pleasure to parents and friends. They are usually held towards the end of term.


STAFF VACANCIES

From time to time vacancies do arise for teachers of the following instruments: violin, viola, cello, bass, classical guitar, harp, recorder, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, French horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, piano, percussion (orchestral and drum kit).

The Centre boasts excellent facilities and offers good rates of pay. Future vacancies will be advertised on this website.

If you are interested in teaching at the Centre you are welcome to send a CV to the address below, which will be kept on file.


PUPIL VACANCIES
