Elvis has left the building.. in the wrong bag

All Shook Up!
Harp NamedWe often receive messages about lost property. At the end of lessons, small items from music folders can easily be left behind. Before you leave, take a quick look round. Please also ensure you pack your own kit and not somebody else’s! And, most importantly, a reminder to every harmonaut to write your name on everything in your music pack. When things go missing however, it’s usually because a harmonaut has inadvertently picked up and packed someone else’s kit. Thank you very much.

Let’s get ready to rumble!
To secure your Harp Academy place this term, advance payment is needed. You can pay by monthly instalments, or for the whole term. This can be done through your bank (online or direct), or through our Store. Further information is available here.

Dates for your diary
You can check our lesson dates using the My School menu above. It’s a good idea to keep a note of these on your calendar at home, or in your diary. We don’t usually start back straight away, and we often finish ahead of the last week of term. Either way, we always provide 10 dates per harmonaut per term. Please be aware that lesson times may change for children starting KS2.

Do you have everything you need for our new term?
Now is a good time to check through your harmonica kit. As a bare minimum, every student must have..

•  At least one working harmonica

If you’d like to take part a solo entry, or a duo/group entry, there’s still time. Get in touch and we’ll help you with your entry. Further details are available here.

Aren’t you a little short to be a Stormtrooper?

Here are some harmonauts at Balfour School enjoying their Star Wars session with Ben Jones…

Star Wars is always a favourite with our students, but there’s plenty more musical fun we get up to each week at Harp Academy.
