Instrumental Taster Days

Join our pupils and take part in a fun and interactive day of music.

St Mary's Music School hosts a number of instrumental taster days throughout the year. Our taster days are designed to give young people with a passion and talent for music an insight into what it is like to be a pupil here. 

To take part, all applicants must have been taking lessons on their chosen instrument for a minimum of 12 months.

You can expect a chance to experience a day at a specialist music school, interactive music sessions and expert guidance from our teaching staff.

Bring your instrument and dive into a world of melody and rhythm! 
Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for our next instrumental taster days, or contact our admissions department, admissions@smms.uk to add your name to our contact list.
