IMS attends Devon Music Education Hub Meeting

Lee WhittockOn the 28th of February directors Mike Mapps and Paul Hiley attended a Devon Music Education Hub (DMEH) meeting. There was a wide range of Devon's music organisations in attendance, including Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Exeter Cathedral, and Music Devon - who along with ourselves are the most prominent providers of school instrumental tuition in the county.

Much of the focus of the DMEH is on class music teaching and the government’s “Wider Opportunities” programme in particular, all of which helps to spread the interest in instrumental tuition and introduce every child in Devon to the advantages and enjoyment of playing a musical instrument.

Meanwhile we will continue our involvement with DMEH and FMS and ensure that IMS Ltd is conversant with and involved in the latest moves and initiatives from the government and Devon Music Service.

IMS on the rise in Cornwall!

PrestonOur teaching in Cornwall has received a further boost this term through the provision of services to Quethiock CE Primary School.

We are initially supplying the school with Guitar and Drum Kit tuition, and have been able to assist in loaning the school instruments to help get started. We are delighted that take up for tuition has been so high and look forward to a long working relationship with the school & staff.

Chloe Bix performs to IMS North Devon pupils

PrestonChloe Bix is a classically trained folk singer/songwriter and teacher local to North Devon. Chloe provided a whole class music workshop for a combined reception and year 1 class at West Down School this term, much to the delight of school children and staff!

The children and staff of the school were treated to Chloe playing on guitar, violin & piano accordian, and some pupils even got to accompany Chloe playing on ukeleles - well done to all involved!

The performance was greatly appreicated and and we would like to thank Chloe for giving her time and energy to help inspire our pupils. More information about Chloe can be found at www.chloebix.co.uk

No more admin for your office

Using IMS can significantly reduce the workload on your office staff when it comes to putting on music tuition. We deal with all paperwork and management of peripatetic teachers leaving your staff free to focus on other areas of work.

If you have peripatetic teachers who visit your school that you think could benefit from our support, why not get in touch? We can support them to help ensure a common approach to your music provision that could save you time, as well as providing all the other benefits that come from using our music service.
