Huntingdonshire Music School Association


Welcome

image Welcome to the Huntingdonshire Music School and Huntingdonshire Music School Association (HUMSA) - one of the Internet’s best kept secrets!

Whilst we may not brag very much, the school is very much a place of musical excellence where adults and children can learn an instrument and play with others in a relaxed and friendly setting.

We have an ‘open door’ policy so why not come in to see us on a Saturday morning and see what a few hundred people get up to in the name of music. We can’t promise that it will make you more attractive to the opposite sex or provide superhuman powers. We can, however, promise you fun and the ability to take up something that might very well change your life.

Sit back, relax and explore…

Play (Music ;-) )with Others

At present, ensembles include group theory lessons,  3 Bands and 4 Ensembles. Other ensemble and group playing is encouraged and regular concerts are held in and out of College.

The current groups are:-

Ensembles

  • Brass Ensemble
  • Saxophone Ensemble
  • Advanced String Ensemble
  • Beginner String Ensemble

Bands

  • Intermediate Concert Band
  • Advanced Concert Band
  • Big Band
  • Our recently formed Folk Group rehearses on a Tuesday night.
    We also have a group of saxophone fanatics who get together regularly and scope for a flute group subject to numbers wishing to take part.
    We would love to start a childrens choir - please contact us if you are interested!

    The list is fairly fluid as we encourage those with a similar interest to start their own groups.

    Students can enter for practical and theory exams from beginner to diploma lessons.

    End of Term Concert - Saturday 7th July 2012 - With Added ‘Fnugg’

    On Saturday 7th July there will be a free concert at the Huntingdonshire Regional College starting at 19:30 given by some of the ensembles at the music school.

    We also have a new feature - a spot for staff to strut their stuff. Taking the first spotlight is Robin Norman who teaches brass and directs the Senior Concert Band and the Senior Orchestra. Not being a wallflower - they don’t tend to suit tubas - Robin is playing ‘Fnug’ which demonstrates some of the many sounds a tuba is capable of including harmonics and beat-boxing. There is more information on this piece on YouTube.

    All members of the public are welcome
