Student Memo 281015

Dear Students / Parents / Guardians,

Hope you all had a restful summer and a smooth start to the scholastic year 2015/16.

This year, the Johann Strauss School of Music Malta has introduced the new grading system; you may find full details about this on the School Handbook.

The School Handbook is also a new initiative; this booklet is available from the main office room 007 or upon purchase of the music theory pack; the School Handbook in Maltese and English includes all you need to know about the Johann Strauss School of Music.

May I encourage students following the Standard Music Course to get the JSSoM Loyalty Card which is worth for its value. JSSoM Loyalty Card holders are entitled to free tickets for local concerts and productions; free photocopies and also discounts from local music and stationery outlets.

Students, parents and guardians are advised to visit the JSSoM website regularly; the Noticeboard page includes memos, news, notices and calendar which are regularly updated.


Myra Cassar and Lizzie Anne Faure have attended pianoforte masterclasses in Pescara Italy;

Maria Ellul participated in the Saxophone World Congress;

Marvic Baldacchino and Christabelle Formosa have attended the Oxford International Music School during the summer;

Thomas Alexander Pace participated in the Sax-Festival in Strasbourg;

Several JSSoM students already form part of the Malta Youth Orchestra; another new entry this year is violinist Matthew Bugeja.
