We all know about the benefits of music education for children, from helping develop their reading skills to encouraging their creative thinking. However, we also understand that many classroom teachers are not musically confident and struggle to know how to integrate music into their lessons. With a jam-packed timetable and pressure to meet targets in other areas of the curriculum, we know that it is hard to find time for music in the week.
That’s where we can help. With a team of qualified, experienced music teachers, we are able to offer musical support to your school in a variety of different ways. Below is an overview of how we can help you.
Classroom music lessons for Reception and Key Stage 1
Whole-class music lessons work perfectly to cover teachers’ PPA time. All our classroom music lessons are based on the Kodaly method (you can check out the impact this method has had on one primary school in the UK here). By giving students opportunities to sing, play percussion instruments, respond to music and use sounds creatively, these classes meet the requirements of the National Curriculum for music in a way that is fun and enjoyable for the children.
To allow us to meet your specific school’s needs we offer three different options for these classes.
Option 1 (£32 a session) – We run an hour-long music class each week for the academic year (between 35 and 38 lessons in total).
Option 2 (£35 a session) – We create a unit of work specifically for you that corresponds to the theme children are working on in class whilst also teaching important musical skills. This option comprises of between 5 and 7 hour-long sessions.
Option 3 (£38 a session) – We create a one-off music class based around a particular theme of your choice. These often work well for schools when learning about a particular season or festival / celebration.
Lessons for primary-school children incorporate games, movement, singing and other instruments. Primary- and secondary-school students are supported to develop their playing skills, compose and improvise on the piano, and take graded exams where appropriate. We can also help GCSE and A level students prepare for their solo and ensemble performances. Prices available on request.
We can also offer support to the wider life of the school through running school choirs and orchestras, assisting with school concerts and accompanying in assemblies. Prices available on request.
