Dear Music Co-Ordinator,
I am writing to you to let you and your pupils know about Bandwise! 2017. Run by the East Midlands charity Music for Everyone, Bandwise! provides young wind, brass and percussion players with an exciting opportunity to learn, play and perform in a group of over 200 people aged 8-21. We would be very grateful if you could encourage any pupils who may be interested in attending to come along. Please feel free to forward the attached leaflet on to any peripatetic instrumental teachers who teach at your school. If you require any hard copies of the form, do let me know and I will be happy to post some out to you.
Bandwise! is a well-established event and the course is being run for the 18th consecutive year. The event takes place over two weekends, the first consisting of rehearsals and workshops, with an informal performance the following weekend. Our dates for 2017 are as follows: –
· Rehearsal Weekend: 25 + 26 February, Bluecoat Academy, Aspley Lane
· Concert: Sunday 5 March, Albert Hall, Nottingham
The course is designed for players of all levels to take part. Performers are split into groups by ability, allowing them the opportunity to work and progress alongside their peers. The three groups are defined as:
· Bandwise 1: Grades 1 – 2
· Bandwise 2: Grades 3 – 4
· Bandwise 3: Grades 5+
Sheet music and play-along tracks are sent to all registered participants approximately a month before the course, giving them time to become familiar with the music and work with their instrumental teacher.
The course fees are £25.00 – £27.00 depending on the Bandwise! group, with discounts available for multiple family members.
I have attached a registration form, and would be grateful if you might consider promoting the course to your pupils. Further information can also be found on our website: https://www.music-for-everyone.org/event/bandwise-2017/
We look forward to seeing some of your students at Bandwise! 2017 – if you have any questions or queries, please feel free to get in touch.
With all best wishes

A gigantic ‘Thank You’ to all involved with the FOF School Fair – We raised a fantastic £1529.09. This will really help our children as we continue to provide such fantastic enriching opportunities. The visit to the Panto is just one of the activities subsidised by monies raised by the FOF. Once again, a massive thanks to everyone for all of their hard work.
We are exceptionally proud of one of our Class 4 children – Jake Broughton. He performs in St Wulfram’s Church Choir, a nationally renowned church choir in Grantham.
At St Wulfram’s Church, they are very proud of all choristers, and all they achieve. In recent years, they have sung services in inspirational venues such as St Paul’s Cathedral, St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, Salisbury Cathedral and York Minster, to great acclaim, in addition to all their singing at St Wulfram’s.
The children’s choirs begin from the age of seven – boys and girls are given equal prominence and training. Mixed-voice youth choir (14-18) continues the training, so that members can sing in confident harmony. Currently the youth and children’s choirs have more than 40 members, drawn from many local schools. And the adult church choir and chamber choir is open to all ages of people who are willing to throw themselves into our choral community. If you or someone you know would like to join one of the choirs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org , phone 07764 536483, or leave a note for me in the parish office.

A huge , gigantic THANK YOU to everyone that made our Christmas Fair a success. We all had fun; ate great food; raised lots of money and started the FPS festivities with a bang. Well done Team FPS
