Great news from two of the long term collaborators of the Haslemere Fringe:

St Bartholomew’s C of E (Aided) Primary School in partnership with The Music Works is delighted to be opening a new music centre on the school’s site in Haslemere.   The Music Works is a community interest company whose mission is to help make music education as accessible as possible to all children in the local area.

Their experienced Yamaha accredited teachers provide high quality music lessons and would like to offer local children a free introductory lesson.  To sign up, visit 

Using the world renowned Yamaha syllabus, students can learn Drums, Guitar, Keyboard and Singing from age 7+. Younger students can join our bespoke Ukulele course for ages 5+.  The centre will also include a recording studio with state of the art software and equipment, enabling children to make multi-track recordings of their music to a professional standard.

Head Teacher, Charles Beckerson is also a well-known local musician and has said ‘This music centre is a dream come true for me.  I am passionate about music and I’m delighted that we are going to be offering this incredibly exciting opportunity to the children of Haslemere and beyond.  Let’s bring happiness, joy and entertainment to the next generation by keeping excellent music very much alive in the 21st century!’
