Ringing Strings is my mobile music school for classical and acoustic guitar, mandolin and ukulele. I work in a number of primary schools in Cambridgeshire, teaching pupils during their school day - either individually, in small groups or whole classes.

This site is an easy way for me to communicate with a large number of parents and pupils. If you are a new customer, there are pages of information about the instruments, grades etc and explaining how I work. If you are already signed up for lessons, you should have your own login (see below) for your weekly lesson notes.

Do have a look round the site, and you are welcome to email me if your question is not answered here. The site does not include lesson prices, as there are different arrangements in different schools. 

I've been teaching music in schools for over 20 years now and I still love it and I'm still learning!

And by the way, I'm fully up to date with Child Protection requirements including DBS, and am a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM).

Thanks!  Hugh Boyde

News, updates and musings

It's almost the end of the school year! Congratulations to those involved in some great concerts in my various schools this term. Also to the many of you who have achieved fine results in your ABRSM Music Medals or grade tests over the year. 

Over the summer I am going to be working on a new website, and a lot of the content from this site will be moved across. Watch this space.
