Welcome September

Hello September

September is always a favourite here in the Sweet Symphony Studio. It signals the end of the summer holidays and a return to normality! Everyone’s back in their regular lesson spaces (well, kind of – read on to see what I mean!) and we get to catch our breath (a little). Plus, there’s the added

The year ahead

2019 is shaping up to be a very busy year already for everyone at Sweet Symphony! We’ve got several exam sessions coming up (read more about these here) over the next few months. February sees us welcome two new Teachers to the Studio, as well as find out how we did in the Tyne &

And so it begins…

Hello, and welcome to the very first edition of the Sweet Symphony School of Music blog! Blogging is something we never thought we’d end up doing – after all, what on earth could a Music School find to blog about and, more to the point, who would want to read it?! Well, let’s see, shall
