We very much hope you¬†would like to continue learning harmonica next month. If you have a standing order set up, simply¬†leave it¬†ticking over. Your transfer of ¬£16.75 on 15th August was¬†the advance subscription for September. If you pay termly, or manually each month, please secure your place by transferring¬†now!¬†Although some¬†places¬†may be¬†available when term starts,¬†signing up now¬†will guarantee your place¬†and we won’t need to chase up.
We very much look forward to continuing the harmonica¬†this autumn, with some great new themes. We start back the week beginning 12th September 2016. This gives us six sessions¬†up to October half-term and four sessions afterwards. It¬†also leaves time¬†for rollover dates and seasonal performances.
Home learning with Harp Academy
Many of the key skills and music pieces we¬†teach at School are supported by¬†fun learning pages¬†on our website. These¬†are ideal for practise at¬†home, and include wider learning topics¬†to¬†add to children’s musical experience and general knowledge.
Using your subscriber log-in, you can enjoy exploring the Music Libraries we have developed for each Key Stage from the menus above (KS1, KS2, KS3). Music pages include a step-by-step audio guide to help you learn your chosen¬†piece, harmonica tab and a backing track to play along to. You can also print off tabs and there are often short video items to support a¬†special¬†aspect of your chosen piece. Here’s an example of¬†our favourite Calypso song, Tingalayo. Continue reading
Harp Academy Teaching Dates
Our teaching schedule is¬†advertised¬†in the¬†My School¬†menu above. It’s a good idea to check this regularly and keep¬†a note, particularly as each term starts and ends.¬†Parents should be aware that we run 10 termly sessions each; which means our harmonica programme¬†often¬†finishes ahead of your¬†school’s term. This is standard for music services. It means we’re out of the way during the busiest times at School. If you appear¬†to be missing our regular bulletins and¬†reminders regarding dates and subscription renewals,¬†please check that our information is reaching your in-tray and not languishing silently¬†in a spam folder!
