Live Music

Live music is back on at Semitone every Friday night at 8pm. Each week we invite a musician to perform as our featured artist, followed by a brief break and then an open mic which is open to all.

Audience numbers are strictly limited. If you are interested in attending, please email info@semitonestudios.com

Music Appreciation

Music Appreciation meets at Semitone on Fridays from 10:30-12:00 and there is an online session available on Thursday afternoons.

The class primarily focuses on classical music, and is open to knowledgeable enthusiasts as well as people who have little or no knowledge of classical music at all. The format of the class is a combination of listening to music, lecture, and discussion. If you've always wanted to learn more about classical music but felt too out of your depths to approach the subject, this class could be for you - it is genuinely friendly and inclusive.

For more information or if you are interested in attending, please contact Peter Eccles at peter@semitonestudios.com or 07715 643110.
