Music

We follow the National Curriculum for programmes of study for Music which aims to ensure that all children:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations

The children also have weekly hymn practice.

The following musical instrument tuition is available at school:

  • Drums
  • Guitar
  • Keyboard
  • Brass
  • Flute
  • Violin

These are private lessons which parents are billed for termly.  Drum, Flute & Brass lessons can be arranged  by visiting the Cornwall Music Service Trust website (please see the link below) and keyboard, guitar and violin lessons can be arranged via the school office. 

The notice period is 6 weeks - please inform CMST and the school in writing, if you wish your child to cease having lessons.
