Specialist Music Teachers Mr Matt Miles & Mr James Connelly from 'PlayMusic' come into school twice a week to teach music to the children. Their enthusiasm and infectious love for music engages every child in a very special way. Lessons focus on the enjoyment and exploration of music rather than 'perfect technique'. So far these amazing lessons have included:
- Samba Drums
- Rhythm and Rap
- Rock Band
- Djembe Drums
Mr Miles also leads a whole school Musical Assembly every Friday morning... what better way to start the day than with a sing-song!
Each academic year Mr Miles and Mr Connelly host a 'Musical Extravaganza' at the local village hall, during which each class show off what they have learnt to parents and carers, followed by solos by some of our children.
Individual or Group Instrument Tuition
At Challock School, pupils have the opportunity to learn an array of musical instruments via our wonderful peripatetic teachers.
Currently we offer:
- Drumming Lessons
- Ekulele Lessons
- Guitar Lessons
- Keyboard Lessons
- Piano Lessons
- Violin Lessons
Sessions can be arranged in groups or individually, and are available throughout the school day. For more information on prices and availability please contact the School Office.
The Class Project
We also run a 'Class Project' in Attenborough Class. This enables each child to learn an instrument free of charge for the whole academic year. Pupils are taught each week in class by a teacher from 'Make Time for Music'; and take their instrument home after the first term to practice at home too.
Our current instrument is the ekulele and in previous years children have learnt the violin.
