Gwent Music Lessons Suspended

April 20th, 2020 by Roxanne Harry

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID emergency, Gwent Music are unable to provide lessons for the coming Summer term. We are extremely disappointed that we have not been able to provide online tuition as planned.  We hope you are able to make alternative arrangements for the coming weeks, and that we will be able to resume normal service before too long.

Cancellation of Music Centres and concerts

March 14th, 2020 by Roxanne Harry

In view of the developments with the coronavirus outbreak, and in conjunction with the local authority, we have made the decision to cancel all rehearsals and concerts up until the Easter Holidays.

This will include all music centre and community ensemble sessions, Monday afternoon theory, the showcase concerts next Friday 20th and the 27th of March, and the Gwent Youth Brass Band performance at the Barbican on 23rd March.

The Gwent Youth Orchestra Course schedule to take place from April 3rd to 8th will also be postponed.  More information will be circulated about this at a later date.

Exams scheduled to take place in Gwent Music offices over the next 3 weeks will go ahead as normal. Lessons in schools will continue as planned, unless your child’s school has made an independent decision to close.
