Each class has Music for two terms in the year. Over time, all the elements are looked at: beat, rhythm, pitch, tempo, dynamics, timbre, texture, form, harmony, style and mood. This is done through singing, playing, listening, creating and representing. All with the underlying philosophy that we are there to enjoy making music together.
Alison Laxon and Jane Cameron work together to produce the school choir.
The choir performs for the following events:
• APPA Primary Schools Festival in November and/or our biennial music concert
• As part of the the school Carol Service
• As part of other school events and assemblies as opportunities arise.
Every year students are invited to join our ukelele group. Numbers are limited so please email your child’s name and room number to Alison Laxon by the end of February. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org They practice regularly and will perform at our biennial music concert. In 2016 we are aiming to play at the Ukulele Festival in November.
