We currently serve around 20 secondary schools in South Wales and in most cases we deal directly with parents over fees. However, several schools choose to ‘buy in’ our service and in many cases have made significant savings by tailoring our service to fit their needs most efficiently.
Support with school ensembles and productions is a major part of our service and we have an extensive library of music for bands and orchestras.
Practical examination support at GCSE and A level is fundamental. All of our musicians who teach in the secondary sector are experienced with the requirements of these exams, and are used to preparing students for the tests.
In addition to the services mentioned we offer:
- Full support and administration with external examining bodies, typically A.B.R.S.M. and Rock School.
- In house expertise with several recording software packages, ideal for inset training and tailored to your specific needs.
- Workshops on composition and solo skills development.
- Excellent relations with both the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and the Sound Design Department at University of South Wales.
