Adult Invovement

Adults appear at or around the college in all guises.

     

Some simply deliver the kids and wait in the canteen refectory until the kids have finished. Many give in the unequal struggle and learn something themselves. It’s much easier to tell them to practice their scales when they can see that you have to do them….

Some know that they want to learn an instrument from day 1 and simply get stuck in.

Others reach a point in their lives, such as retirement, and decide that they’re not ready to surrender and learn the instrument that they’d always wanted to but didn’t previously have the opportunity to.

Some help by way of either taking part directly in the association (HUMSA) and it’s activities including:-

  • this website (and we always need contributors, photographers , budding graphic designers)
  • publicity material
  • talking to potential sponsors
  • committee posts
  • public events
  • catering for college events
  • ‘roadies’ for gigs
  • looking after equipment

     

Some might be budding experts/tutors in anything from an instrument to composition to the application of music technology.

Public Work

One of the downfalls/benefits of playing music is that inevitably you get the chance to expose your talents to the wider world (this falls under the grown-up category of “character-forming”). HUMS provides its pupils with different opportunities to play in the bigger-world:-

  • externally run competitions
  • as part of a group or ensemble
    • in a concert at the end of each academic term
    • in a band that has been booked to play at an external private function
    • at a public event such as the summertime events organised by the Huntingdon District Council

We are also very keen to make the college as inclusive as possible by admitting people from all backgrounds (so long as they like music, don’t take themselves too seriously, are prepared to try and to have fun with others of a similar disposition).
