What we do
SaMM is a Saturday Morning Music School based in Totnes, Devon, UK. We meet every Saturday during term time in the Ariel Centre at KEVICC,
We aim to help children experience music making and improve musicianship
whilst also learning that music is a fun and rewarding social activity
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.
Although you do not have to be able to play an instrument to be part of SaMM, we strongly encourage it by offering:

COVID Health and Safety
We continue to take COVID risk precautions for at least the next half-term despite the relaxation in the rules. This approach is based on advice from the Devon Music Hub and our own wish to err on the side of caution. For this reason we ask:
1) Parents can bring their children to the door, but cannot enter the building. We have a dedicated member of staff at the door who will ensure your child is taken to their class and ready for pick-up at the end of their sessions. Please make sure you have told us the time of pick-up and made sure we have your mobile contact details when you leave.
2) We may re-introduce bubbles for the morning. Please talk to us if your child needs to cross over to another bubble during the morning.
3) We will provide hand sanitiser and ensure that all instruments and furniture are wiped down between sessions. There will also be a 15 minute break in every hour during which rooms will be ventialted.
Please let us know if you have concerns of any kind.
