Spring Term 2020 Newsletter
Dear Parents and Carers,
Wishing you a very Happy New Year! Below you should find key information regarding the forthcoming term. Please remember that you can always get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring Term 2020
Most clubs and tuition programmes are due to start again from the week beginning Monday 6th January. Please check your invoices to make sure that you know the exact start date.
Payments can be made to us either via cash, cheque or BACS payment. We would kindly ask that all cash/cheque payments are returned to us in a sealed envelope. Please ensure that your child’s name, the club/instrument they are learning and amount enclosed is displayed on the front of the envelope. Most of the payments for the Spring Term are due on Friday 17th January.
This term we are trying to encourage as many customers as possible to pay via BACS. Please ask if you need further information.
New Ukulele Clubs Starting This Term:
Ladymount Y1/2 after school on Tuesdays
BHSA Y2 after school on Wednesdays.
Black Horse Hill Juniors - after school on Thursdays
This is the section on our website where we can stream some of the recorded performances by the children. We do need your permission though before we can record your child. The YELLOW form on our website can be completed to consent to video footage being made. This can be found at https://www.myguk.co.uk/online-reply-forms.html
Please remember that we offer a service where we can provide a ukulele and any other equipment that you may require. Our set-up service also provides the initial tune up of the instrument that is not provided by retailers.
It can be quite daunting trying to select the appropriate item if you are unsure as to what exactly you require. There are many different types of ukulele available online and although they may suggest that they are suitable for beginners, they may not be of suitable quality. We can ensure that a quality instrument can be obtained for your child.

After School Clubs Reminder!
Please ensure that you let us know either via text, email or message via the school office if you know that your child is going to be absent from the session. This is for safeguarding purposes and so that we can account for each child who is attending the club.
A big thank you to everyone who took part in our Christmas Giveaway last term!
We donated around £100 to local social action projects, bought six sets of Christmas gifts and three large food hampers. All of which were given to those most in need at Christmas. Thank you!
DO WE HAVE YOUR UP-TO-DATE EMAIL ADDRESS?
Again this term we will also be significantly reducing the amount of paper that we will be printing on, including sheet music handed out. Guitarists can find the sheet music by clicking on the link on the homepage.
Ukulele Clubs – You will be able to download the copies of the sheet music from The Ukulele Club page on our website.
Please contact us for information about piano or keyboard lessons for any age.
the guitar and ukulele workbooks were updated in September ’18. This is not a request for you to purchase a copy of this second edition. Most of the content is still the same with just a few updates. However, if your child has misplaced their original, then there is the option of purchasing another hard copy.
