All pupils have an hour's music lesson each week with Mrs Taylor, a specialist music teacher. They attend a weekly singing assembly and there are both KS1 and KS2 music pages on Starz to support their learning.
In EYFS they sing and play percussion instruments.
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.
Mr Dopadlik teaches Recorder, Flute & Clarinet.
Mr Eisner teaches Guitar.
Mr Takmaz 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 45 pupils in years 2 - 6 having an instrumental lessons!
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
On Tuesday 15th Oct '19 Teversham hosted it's first ever 'Music making afternoon'. All the children learning to play an instrument in school (if they were ready - some new starters didn't participate) and a couple of children having lessons outside school were joined by musicians from Fulbourn Primary to make music together.
The event was led by Mrs Taylor and was both exciting and inspiring for many. The children played several pieces that they had been learning with their music teachers for several weeks and during the afternoon they had chance to sing and play along with others. They made a great sound!
