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.

    Bursaries for Young Students - Help With Tuition Fees

    Huntingdonshire Music School Association work to raise funding for bursaries for Music School students.  We are fortunate in having a number of benefactors, including the Huntingdon Freemen’s Charity.

    Each year we encourage students, and parents/guardians of students under 18, to apply for a bursary.  This is usually the cost of one term’s tuition.  However, we cannot guarantee that funds will always be available.  Each application is treated in the strictest confidence and the details are only know to the Chairman and the Treasurer of the association, and the Director of the Music School.  Application forms are available from the office and we advise students of the details for each year, via the internal music school Leger Lines newsletter.

    Please note that some of these benefactors apply restrictions on access to a bursary, for example based on age or home address e.g. for Freemen’s bursaries.  For students who do not fall within the access requirements we are also consider the availability of Association funds to provide bursaries.
