TMB in your School

TMB IN YOUR SCHOOL!

 

As I’m sure most, if not all of you know, we at TMB teach in a number of schools – primary and secondary – in the areas around both studios. We DO NOT crawl out of bed at midday and spend the afternoon watching episodes of Countdown and Escape To The Country until it’s time to leave for the studio! Chances are that when you arrive for your lesson fresh from school or work and are greeted by your teacher at Stratford or Bicester he or she will already have put in the hours at a local school, or sometimes further afield. This is because we all have a passion for music and particularly our chosen instrument and we want to pass on that passion and knowledge to as many people as possible.............The Musical Box way!

We recently did a spot of research to find out where our younger students at both studios go to school and the results were very interesting......... A number of schools kept cropping up again and again which begs the obvious question, what are instrumental lessons like in those schools if their pupils are looking for teachers outside of school.....? Just sayin’!!!

As a response to this little survey I’ve begun visiting schools in the last week to ‘spread the word’, as it were, but we can always use a little help.........

We are always looking for new schools to send our brilliant teachers into so if you know of one that is in need of some passionate, inspirational and FUN music lessons – REAL music lessons - then tell them about us and let us know. A great many schools have lessons provided by the County Music Service in their area and while they do a good job their approach is very different from ours: more often than not they concentrate on traditional classical instruments and styles whereas we specialise in a more contemporary feel and with contemporary instruments; they tend to teach groups or at least pairs of students, and for shorter periods of time. We on the other hand believe that the best way for any student to make real progress is by having one-to-one lessons for half an hour each week. We know this works – because all of our students AND the excellent music coordinators in the various schools we teach in tell us it does! yes

 

So come on, people of Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire – you need TMB in your school!

Peace and love,

Tim
