Strawberry Music is a co-operative of experienced teachers and musicians based in Dorset led by Walter and Jane Brewster. We work in many settings including state schools, colleges and the independent sector. Our skill base enables us to work with whole classes including 'Wider Opportunities' programmes as well as with gifted and talented individuals who may require tuition to diploma standard and beyond.
