A 20/20 Legacy: the centenary of the Northern School of Music


Audio File
Beatrice Rollins
Northern School Of Music (NSM)

Fae Jones talks about the "peculiar" building of the Northern School of Music.

Heather: What do you remember of the building and the space?
Fae: It was peculiar really. I mean you know that it has been a shop, so…
H: Was it clothing or hosiery or something… shoes…
F: I’m not sure what it was. But you went into a… into a hallway, these two offices - one was on one side one was on the other, as I remember it - and then there was a dark staircase and you went upstairs for the first layer of studios and that was always where I had my lesson with Beatrice Rollins which was a piano lesson. But there was a lot of moving around quickly on a Saturday from room to room because then you would have a theory. Well it was called rudiments then of music.

Part of the #NSM2020 project "A 20/20 Legacy: the centenary of the Northern School of Music" supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
