We’re all getting more used to joining meetings on line or making short recordings etc. We know it might seem strange at first when you record yourself playing or singing, but once you’ve done it a couple of times, you’ll realise how easy it is.

We’ve prepared a very short video clip to help anyone who hasn’t yet tried to record themselves.  Have a listen and try it for yourself:

Its really easy to record a video whilst playing along to a click track – Josh Pope explains how.

Remember:

Nobody will be able to hear you as an individual on the video which we produce: you’ll be part of your usual ensemble.

So – let’s have everyone taking part this Christmas, and enjoy being part of it


Subs:  The subs for this half-term will be £2 a week which will help towards costs.  These are payable half-termly as usual.  [A number of members have over-payments from last term, but we would prefer to sort out these when we return to ‘normal’.  For the moment, it would be helpful for everyone to pay £12 for this half-term please].


Safeguarding:  The SDMC Virtual Meeting Policy is on page 25 in the SDMC Handbook of Policies (on the Information Page)


An Important Message to ALL SDMC Members and Families

It has become increasingly clear that sadly we need to suspend all music centre activities (rehearsals and concerts) for the time-being. We know that making music each week is a key part of all our lives, but we have to ensure the safety and welfare of all SDMC members, parent-helpers or staff. Although we will not be meeting in our various ensembles, this won’t prevent everyone from practising at home!

Simon Thomas (Chair of Trustees)
Matt Pope (Head of Band Development)
Philip King (Head of Centre)

We’ll be in touch again soon, but meanwhile – stay safe!!
