Classroom Music

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.


School Choir

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.
