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.

    Interview - BBC Radio Cambs - Thurs 29th July 3pm


    The HUMS Classical Guitar Ensemble got interviewed by Sue Dougan at the BBC Cowley Road studios in Cambridge today. This was the product of an initial cheeky email following the concert the ensemble gave in Old Hurst church and quite a bit on communication in the meantime. The representatives of the ensemble were Sandra Buckenham (ensemble director) with students Peter Maylor, Terry Schooling and Lorena Serna.

    The interview lasted for something like 30 minutes and ranged far and wide not only about the guitar ensemble but also the music school itself. We always hit the problem of ‘school’ being associated with youngsters so often folks don’t realise that the music school is open to all ages. This has surfaced before when talking with the BBC but apparently Sue hadn’t even heard of the school. Well she has heard now and there’s a tentative suggestion that an future feature might be made on the music school itself, perhaps in September.

    For those who’d like to listen to the interview it will be broadcast at around 3pm on Thursday 29th July on BBC Radio Cambridgshire. The schedule for Thursday is available here. You can always listen live from the BBC Radio Cambs website. It will be available via the BBC iPlayer for up to 7 days after the interview.

    The photos have been added to the Huntingdonshire Music School group on Flickr.

    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.
