Music

 

At St. Mary’s we have a strong tradition of Music.

As well as there being different Year groups performing in Nativity/ Christmas performances and services, the oldest children in the school put on an annual summer production.

Our school Masses involve the children singing and the advanced recorder group accompany. The choir opened our Advent Mass, the violinists played a carol and each phase team sang a song from their Christmas performance.

Mrs Taylor leads the school choir at a lunchtime club, and they have sung locally to elderly members of our community, and at the Christmas and Summer school fayre’s.

There are four peripatetic Music teachers who teach weekly on Monday and Wednesday during lesson time and they offer: drumming, woodwind, guitar, ukulele and violin lessons. If your child is interested in learning to play, you can contact the teachers directly. Please see below:

We hold an annual Summer Concert where the instrumentalists and choir perform to the parents, and last year the hall was packed with an appreciative audience.
