Some of our students are featured in this BBC Spotlight report on the Saturday Music School.
Saturday Music School (SaMS) meets at King Edward VI Community College (KEVICC) in Totnes, Devon. It enables young people aged between 8 and 18 years to get involved in music-making through workshops, ensembles, individual lessons, and performance.
SaMS provides a range of workshops to suit all musical tastes and abilities including jazz, folk and singing, as well as instrumental ensembles. We offer music-making to those just starting out, whilst also encouraging confident players to gain ensemble experience and develop their skills.
We provide tuition on a range of instruments, at all standards from beginner to expert. Students are taught by experienced tutors, individually or in small groups.
SaMS started in November 2000 and is now attended by over 100 young musicians. We are funded by membership fees and generous donations including King Edward VI Community College, who also provide the use of the premises for free.
