CONCERTS AND EVENTS

Children’s Concerts Brighton

SCMT has unfortunately had to cancel full weekends of Children’s Concerts in Brighton and Oxford during 2020 because of COVID19.

However, we’re now delighted to announce that we’re committing to three weekends of children’s concerts in 2021… during March, June and December.  We’re expecting to raise a huge amount of money for local charities, and have numerous concerts dedicated to beginner students.  We’ll hear a record-breaking number of children performing their music for friends and family.  We’ve had so much lovely feedback from parents in relation to music lessons this year which have carried on regardless of the difficulties, including less opportunities to perform.  From face to face lessons, then online… and back again;  it’s been a journey.

‘The concerts organised every year are always a great success and my pupils have really enjoyed taking part. Parents have mentioned to me that they really appreciate their children having this opportunity to perform in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere outside of a school setting.’ Andrea, SCMT piano teacher

‘Susanna works very hard in organising and hosting two children’s concerts a year for all pupils to showcase their hard work, which also provides us valuable opportunities to meet other tutors and chat about our experiences, and generally get to know everyone at SCMT better.’  Laura, SCMT violin teacher

‘SCMT puts on such great children’s concerts which is a really important part of music training.’  Amanda, parent

Please have a look at our testimonials page at www.cassam.co.uk/testimonials/ where you’ll find numerous parents and tutors commenting on previous children’s concert successes.  Performance is so important to a child’s musical journey; confidence, an incentive to perform and the experience of loud applause from friends and family.  Music lives to be let out! https://www.instagram.com/scmtmusictuition/

Fingers crossed for the rest of 2020… and we’ll see you all soon!

Children’s concerts for 15 years!

This weekend SCMT Music Tuition is celebrating 15 years of Children’s Concerts. It’s a massive milestone for our ever-expanding community of young musicians and we couldn’t be more excited.

We pride ourselves on keeping all performance environments intimate and relaxed. The audience flooded with friends and family, within stunning venues that make the occasion really stand out in everyone’s memory. We have concerts exclusively for beginners so that no-one feels intimidated and Susanna personally oversees every element of the day to ensure each child’s experience lifts their spirits and inspires them to return again next time. Every musician, regardless of their age or ability, benefits from an incentive to improve. Exams aren’t for everyone perhaps… but I would suggest that our concerts are. Music lives to be let out!

Children’s Concerts for 15 years!

We have more than 120 performances scheduled this time around… more than ever before:

Saturday 30th Nov. Wesley Memorial Church https://www.wesleymem.org.uk/welcome.htm

Sunday 1st December. Brighton Unitarian Church http://www.brightonunitarian.org.uk  

I have been teaching for SCMT for over 10 years and Susanna has always been extremely professional, supportive and friendly. She is very committed to providing good quality music education and ensuring that tutors, parents and pupils are all happy with how lessons are progressing The summer and Christmas concerts she organises every year are always a great success and my pupils have really enjoyed taking part. Parents have mentioned to me that they really appreciate their children having this opportunity to perform in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere outside of a school setting. I would not hesitate at all to recommend SCMT to anyone who is looking for a music tutor.  Andrea, piano and violin teacher

SCMT Summer 2019 Charity Concerts

The charity concerts are coming!  Sunday, 19th May, 1pm – 8pm.

Five Concerts.  120 performances!

We’ll be raising as much money as we can for ‘Centrepoint’ and are sponsored by Ackerman Music (www.ackerman.co.uk).

We’re so excited to hear your music – thank you ALL for working so hard for this moment.

Performing music is a fundamental part of any musician’s journey.  Music is better shared… and performing is a confidence boosting experience for the performer and a huge moment of pride for teachers, friends and family.  Even if you are a new musician and have no particular performance ambitions, there are massive benefits to allowing others to occasionally witness your skills.

‘When I’d finished I felt like a King!’  Leo Davies (aged 5), SCMT concert performer, beginner piano, June 2016.
