As from Monday 12th April the Music School will be open for individual lessons.

We are observing guidelines and directives with care: only the large rooms are being used, ventilation is good, instruments are sanitised and there is gel available for hands and masks/visors are being worn.

If you haven’t been in touch with your teacher direct about restarting lessons, then do email or ring 01258 452511. The same applies of course if you are thinking of starting lessons.

Our Music Appreciation courses are starting again in Ringwood on Monday mornings 10.00 – 12.00, Bridport on Wednesday mornings 10.00 – 12.00, Dorchester Wednesday afternoons 2.00 – 3.30 and at DRMS Thursday afternoons 2,15 – 3.45. These will all start in the week beginning 17th May and run for the following six weeks – no half term break on this occasion. We are continuing with ‘The Concert Tradition’ with sessions on The German States, North Italy, America away from the East Coast, English Provincial Festivals etc.

The sales and library divisions are operating as usual.

Thank goodness for music to bolster our spirits at this deeply disturbing time!
