What is make-up week?

The make-up week is at the end of term and may be used by the tutor to give a lesson that they have postponed from earlier in the term. Make-up week is a scheduled teaching week, so please ensure you can be available for a lesson at your usual time.

Which concert is for me? 

Performing is an inspiring, energising, integral part of learning music! Each term we hold the following concerts for adult and child students of Greenwich Music School:

 
 
  • Soloists concerts are for all child and adult students learning an instrument or voice at Greenwich Music School.
  • Launchpad concerts are a less formal performance opportunity for students aged up to 10 who are new to performing. It includes a group warm-up with a GMS tutor.
  • Ensembles concerts are for students in group courses such as the orchestras, musicianship class, theory & composition class, and choir.
