I have a Sonos Beam at the moment and I am looking at adding 2 x Play:1 speakers to enable surround sound. However I would like to use the music services to drive just the 2 speakers without sound coming from the Beam on occasions. I assume I will need to switch the TV on to activate the Beam but can the sound be isolated to only come out of the Play:1 speakers?

When configured as surrounds, sound will come from the Beam even for music sources. There is a setting to enable full volume instead or ambient on the surrounds for music sources.
Or remove surrounds and create a stereo pair with the two play ones
sheffieldsteeler,

Just to also mention that you do not need to have your TV switched on to play music sources through your Beam and/or surround/connected speakers. You can leave the TV off or in standby, pick up a phone controller or speak to Alexa built into the Beam and play music from Amazon, Spotify, Deezer etc.
