Success With Arts Award

We recently celebrated with several of our young musicians in achieving their Arts Award qualifications!

As a newly registered Arts Award Centre, Shropshire Music Service ran the Trinity College certificates as a response to lockdown 3, to engage with pupils at home who would normally attend our School of Music ensembles.

"We wanted to say a big thank you for putting on Arts Award for the children, I think they have benefited so much from the Zoom sessions, workshops and performance. It’s been so good for their confidence, self esteem and to have something else to think about rather than Covid or assessments at school!" - Lisa (parent)

A total of 21 young musicians achieved their Arts Award 'Discover' and 'Explore' certificates following a 6-month programme of Zoom workshops, masterclasses and face-to-face rehearsals, culminating in a public performance in June.

“Thanks, Harriet has enjoyed completing her Arts Award Explore - it has given some structure with the workshops which the kids have missed out on. I know she is very much looking forward to playing in a group again.” - Caroline (parent)
