Music @ Teversham Primary

 

At Teversham we offer many opportunities for children to make music and learn to play instruments. 

 

We currently have 5 instrumental teachers:

 

Mrs Ludlam teaches Piano and Violin.

Mr Dopadlik teaches Recorder, Flute & Clarinet.

Mr Eisner teaches Guitar.

Mr Dawson teaches Trumpet and Trombone.

Mr Cooper also teaches Violin.


​All lessons take place during the school day, on a rota basis, and pupils can be taught individually, in pairs or groups of 3 (this is dependent upon which instrument is being learnt and whether children can be suitably matched ability/ experience wise). Pupils may start learning an instrument from year 2  (please note flute and clarinet are available from year 5). We currently have 46% of pupils in years 2 - 6 having an instrumental lesson!

If you’re interested in your son/daughter taking up lessons please ask at the school office or contact Mrs Taylor on JTaylor@teversham.cambs.sch.uk

 

All classes have an hour music lesson per week and all pupils attend a weekly singing assembly. All these are led by Mrs Taylor our PPA music specialist. Mrs Taylor works hard to link their music lessons to their topic of the term and has both a KS1 and KS2 starz page.

In class music lessons the children sing, play instruments, compose and listen to music from a wide range of genres.

 

The instruments used in classes are:

 

  • EYFS – classroom percussion instruments 
     
  • Year 1  - classroom percussion including pitched percussion (boom whackers and chime bars)
     
  • Year 2 – ocarinas and classroom percussion

 

  • Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 – Keyboards and classroom percussion

 

In addition to music lessons there is a KS2 Choir. The choir has sung in ‘Little Britten’ at the Corn Exchange and has participated in the ‘Circle Schools choir Festival’ at Burwell village college. The Choir regularly visit the lunch together group at Hope church where they sing to entertain the diners.

We took part in Sign2Sing's annual fundraising event again last spring. We often learn signs in worship as this helps us learn the song words and teaches us a valuable skill at the same time!
