Conwy Music Service is delighted to announce that it has secured funding to run a project for developing woodwind players.
The ensemble project will provide pupils with the opportunity to play side by side with some of the county’s best young players, get coaching from the best teachers, improve skills in a fun and exciting way and take part in public performances.
Thank you Conwy Music Service Staff

May I express my gratitude to your staff this term. We had our band performance on Tuesday with a band of 27 children playing. They were of all abilities, new starters as of September and the “professionals” of 2 years! It was absolutely marvellous and the parents and staff were amazed. I had asked your staff to include all their learners no matter if they could play a part or 1 note! And they took up this challenge with enthusiasm and the result was wonderful.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

EXPRESSIVE ARTS SERVICE 2016/7

Here we go again – with more inspiring activities supporting children and young people to discover the arts!
Conwy Staff Ensemble!
Posted: 02 Aug, 2016
Summer term ended in traditional style with the Conwy Staff Ensemble performing to children from 35 Conwy schools.
This annual event involves members of the Music Service instrumental teaching team coming together to form a band for the last two weeks of term and driving all over the county to bring live music to children! As well as showcasing the different instruments the children have the opportunity to learn with the service, it also shows that the teachers can play pretty well too – not to mention entertaining everyone into the bargain; the old favourites were all there, but this year saw some lovely new pieces too – from Nellie the Elephant and Ar Lân y Mor to the Addams Family – it was all very well received and every single concert ended on a high with a performance of Uptown Funk.
Happy Summer everyone!
Pupils’ art workshops go ‘Back to the Future’
Posted: 21 Jul, 2016
Four Colwyn Bay schools and local artist Mai Thomas are creating artwork for the hoardings which will surround the site of the new office accommodation in the heart of the town.
Pupils will take inspiration from the rich architectural heritage found along Conway Road and design new patterns full of colour, shape, line and texture. They’ll imagine future streetscapes and draw individual miniature scenes portraying their ideas. The finished work will take the form of large scale images digitally reproduced on hoardings with a series of spyholes and insets to glimpse their tiny visions of the future.
