Welcome to Strawberry Music

 ‘Music’s not What We Do, it’s Who We Are’

We are a co-operative of experienced teachers and musicians based in Dorset led by Walter and Jane Brewster. We work in a diverse range of musical fields focussed mainly on tuition and performance.

Currently we also undertake web design commissions and a have also delivered programmes centred on the use of iPads to develop musical awareness in schools and youth clubs. Walter is about to start his 2nd full season as Musical Director of Dorset Chamber Orchestra. Jane is co-leader of the orchestra. The orchestra has a strong focus on working with young soloists through the early part of their careers and there is an annual ‘Concert for Youth’ in March.

We are active musicians who have been trained to the highest professional standards both as performers and music educators. As we are self-employed we can work with the core values that we value.

From 2011-2017 we have delivered individual and group tuition across a wide range of schools in Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. We have also provided ‘First Access’ whole class tuition on recorder, clarinet, flute and saxophone through our partners at SoundStorm, the Bournemouth Music Education Hub.

Whole Class Bands with good continuation in Year 7 have been more effective than short ‘tasters’ for Year 4
