music

We take pride in employing a specialist music teacher to teach music across every year group every week. In music, the children learn to sing and use percussion instruments to develop a sense of rhythm, pitch and tempo and experience the enjoyment and excitement of making music together. Their ability to listen to and appreciate music is fostered by hearing a variety of types of music and our music specialist has arranged for the children to learn musical instruments as a class, including everything from the common descant recorder, to the more exotic African djembe drums. Every year the children participate in a Christmas production and Carol Service and in other varied musical and dramatic performances at other times across the year including more ambitious productions such as Bugsy Malone.

We also organise our own bank of quality peripatetic music teachers so that the children may learn to play a musical instrument at Swanbourne. Currently some of our children are learning guitar, violin, drums, piano, flute, clarinet and trumpet. There is a charge per term for these lessons, currently £100 per term for ten lessons (as at September 2013). We are delighted to announce that we will be reinstating a school choir from September 2014
