What we do

SaMM is a small children’s music charity 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.

SaMM Totnes Saturday Music School (formerly known as SaMS) is planning a special end-of-term concert on Saturday 19th March 2016 at 1pm.

Established in November 2000, SaMM has provided a platform for music education to many hundreds of young people in the Totnes area each Saturday morning.

Due in no small part to the hard work of its talented tutors and dedicated volunteers, it has been fortunate enough to see a good number of its former students go on to pursue music to a very high standard and perform alongside some of the top musicians in the country.

Some notable achievements, amongst others, include Young Musician of the Year category finalist and the John Dankworth Composition Prize; former students are also currently studying at the Royal College of Music and Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

To celebrate its 15th anniversary year, SaMM students will be joined by some of these award-winning former students in a unique concert celebrating all that SaMM has achieved since its inception.

From modern jazz to contemporary classical and world music, many of these talented performers and composers began their musical careers at SaMM.

We hope you can join us to celebrate this landmark event - you’ll be in for a treat. Please do contact us via the website if you would like more information.

Further details will be provided shortly.
