The Coda Summer Term begins on Monday 19th April and we are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back for one-to-one lessons.
We’re so grateful to everyone in the Coda community who has stuck with us and supported us throughout this long and difficult year. We’re excited for our Summer re-opening and hopeful that, this time, things are moving in a positive direction so we can finally start to plan ahead (as restrictions continue to be eased).
For anyone not currently booked-in but contemplating one-to-one lessons, our books are open to welcome new students (or existing students wanting to try something new!). Our highly qualified and experienced tutors teach your style at your pace – whether you want to progress through exams or prefer to play for pleasure, tuition is tailored to you and your preferences. All ages and abilities are welcomed and encouraged – it’s never too late to learn!
We offer instrumental and vocal taster sessions for just £5, so you can meet the tutor and try a 20-minute session before committing to lessons, so please get in touch for availability or to book.
Our Beautiful Sounds sessions, Kids Ukulele Band and Health & Happiness Choir will all continue online up to half term. All are welcoming new members, so let us know if you would like to join any of the online groups.
We look forward to reintroducing more of our ‘in-person’ groups and ensembles as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so – and we particularly hope to be able to complete the series of both Folk and Ukulele sessions at Walkford United Reformed Church, which were cut short by lockdown!
In the meantime, Chris Hopgood is running a series of webinars covering the basics of music theory for Folk musicians, which are designed to provide you with enough knowledge in music theory to enhance your playing and increase your understanding of music in general. You can find out more on his Facebook page: facebook.com/ChrisHopgoodMusic
Stuart Jebbitt is also hosting Ukulele ‘strumalongs’ and socials on Zoom for the regular Ukulele Band members – contact us for details if you would like to know more.
On-site, we’ve been busy ensuring the music centre is ready to welcome you back safely. Outside, we’re already enjoying occasional glimmers of the warm, sunny weather (hopefully) ahead, and we have been busy sprucing everything up so that you can relax in the Coda gardens on your return.
