Hackney Youth Orchestras

Dear Parents / Carers,

Hackney Youth Orchestras Trust (HYOT) has been providing music tuition for 6-21 year olds at our Saturday Music School in Hackney since 1990. For the 4th year, we will be holding a Music Summer School at Berger Primary School (Anderson Road, LondonE9 6HB) from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th July 2018.

The Summer School has 50 places for students from Hackney and nearby schools. Students need to be a minimum of 8 years old. There will be a range of group music activities, allowing students to learn new music skill and develop their existing ones as well as have lots of fun. These activities will include orchestra, group sessions, choir, music appreciation classes as well as playground activities with our youth worker. Each day there will be a supervised lunch break for students. Students will need to bring a packed lunch.

Registration for students will be at 9.15am, classes will start at 9.30am and finish at 3.30pm. On Friday 27th July there will be a public concert where students will showcase all that they have learnt during the course. The concert will take place at Berger School around noon. All parents / carers will be informed of the exact time.
