We're back for the 2022/23 Academic Term
The Chiswick Saturday Music Centre is open for the new term as is now bigger and better than before.
CSMC opened its doors for the new academic term on Saturday, 17th September 2022 and welcomed two new teachers and many new students. The current term finishes with our Christmas Concert on Saturday, 5th December 2022 and returns after the holidays on Saturday, 7th January 2023. A full list of term dates for 2022/23 can be found by clicking here.
In September, Sanni Talvitie joined CSMC and expanded the range of instrument tuition we provide to include violin. Tom Torley also joined us in September and expands our capacity in piano tuition and in addition allows us to offer tuition in brass instruments for the first time. Our new and existing teachers have allowed CSMC to increase our student numbers and recruitment of new students is going extremely well.
The fact that CSMC has survived the restrictions introduced during the pandemic and is now thriving again is a massive testament to everyone associated with the music centre. That includes all our teachers, volunteers and helpers, our students and their parents/carers, all of whom can all be very proud of the contribution they have made to returning CSMC to the heart of the Chiswick Community.
CSMC ended another successful academic year with its annual summer concert on Saturday, 9th July. An audience of almost 100 were treated to performances by 40 CSMC students, both young and old, across the full gambit of musical instruments and styles championed by Chiswick Saturday Music Centre. The Concert grand finale saw everyone, including the audience, joining together in a rendition of 'Stand By me' by Ben E. King.
A selection of photographs from the concert can be seen in our Gallery or by clicking here.
We still have a few places available for new students, young or older, who would like to learn to play or join in with our groups and bands, So, whether you want to learn violin, classical guitar, jazz saxophone or rock drumming, get in touch - we may well have a place for you.
If you would like to start or continue your musical journey, please drop us an email at email@example.com
We continue to need more volunteers to help supervise activities on Saturday mornings and to help the Committee ensure the smooth running of CSMC. If you are able to help us in any way then please do what you can.
