What we do

SaMM is a Saturday Morning Music School based in Totnes, Devon, UK.

We aim to help children learn and improve musicianship whilst also learning that music is a fun and rewarding social activity and not just a “hard effort” practising alone at home.

We are an inclusive organisation and offer children of all ages and musical abilities – from 4 to 18 and from complete beginner to virtuoso – the opportunity to enjoy making music with others in a wide variety of ensemble workshops.

New Courses and Ensembles at SaMM!

Songwriting

Our new songwriting course with Zelda Marshall is off to a flying start - so if you want to be part of this wonderful opportunity this term, be at SaMM at 9.30 this coming Saturday.

This course is designed for all young budding songwriters who are looking to develop their pre-existing songs and/or learn new techniques to help start the process of writing songs.  
To make the most of this course, it would be useful to have a basic ability on the keyboard, piano or guitar, but playing any instrument will help you in the song writing process.  

Beginner Guitar

Due to popular demand, we will be starting a new group from next term called Beginner Guitar.

The course is designed for those with very little or no experience of playing guitar and will also have an elelment of foundation music in it - so an ideal opportunity for Sing and Players who are moving on! Tutor will be Rachel Thame who has been so successful with the Sing and Play group.

Register your interest if you would like to be part of this group which will take place in the second session.
