We are delighted to inform you that registration is now open on our new pupil database, SpeedAdmin.
You may be wondering why we have changed software provider and why we are asking existing participants and parents to now register with us again.
We needed to change software provider simply because the previous system did not deliver the level of service we wanted for you. It caused all kinds of administrative problems for the team and parents.
The reason we are asking you to re-register is because the information in the two systems was incompatible and therefore we couldn’t migrate data from one system to another. Please be assured that all data has been removed from the old system, and we will only be using SpeedAdmin going forward.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, but the new system is much easier to use so registration should be straightforward, and it provides us with lots of updated features that will make things better for you and for us in the future.
You will need to register to SpeedAdmin, our new pupil database, if:
Please follow the instructions below on how to complete a registration.
Complete the following steps to make a parent/guardian registration and enrol your child/ren.
Please submit one enrolment application per child. Repeat the process for multiple children.
You will only need to make a parent/guardian registration once.
Please note, where we are not able to deliver the lessons in person at the moment, we will arrange for them to take place online.
When registered, we will apply a credit to your new account for any lessons that were not delivered last term.
Once you have registered and enrolled your child/ren, we will add them to a lesson from the waiting list. You will only receive a request for payment once the lesson is confirmed.
For existing orchestra, ensemble and choir participants, we will send you a registration link to your child’s specific ensemble/choir/orchestra for you to register them.
You should receive a separate link to your child’s ensemble. Please check your spam and junk folders if you do not receive this email.
We would like parents to register so we can keep in touch with you about the activities we are planning for all our ensembles and choirs. We are able to hold some online sessions at the moment, and we are looking forward to rehearsals starting back again as soon as possible.
If you currently hire an instrument through Bristol Plays Music, or you would like to hire an instrument for the first time, please submit an application by following the steps below.
There is more guidance and information on each section of the registration, which we hope will enable you to submit your application without any problems.
If you do encounter any difficulties please let us know by contacting us on bookings[ATSIGN]bristolbeacon.org.
On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.
Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.
