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
On Monday 25th March the 48 children who make up Key Stage 2 choir went to the annual circle schools choir festival. They sang 80's hits with the other choirs and performed 'Super trouper' on their own. Here are some photos of our brilliant choir!

The Brook Street Band visited us on Friday 8th March bringing the music of Handel to life for us. The musicians played on a harpsichord, various different sized recorders, a violin and a cello.

Key Stage 2 use the keyboards in music lessons to compose and perform on. They learn how to read music notation, they play melodies, accompaniments and chords and learn good finger positioning.
