Music

In addition to the Music Curriculum, children in Year 6 have brass instrument tuition every week. They are learning to play either the trumpet or the trombone. At the end of Year 6, they have the opportunity to perform with their peers from the Mossley and Carrbrook Partnership schools, the Mossley Hollins High School Year 7 band and the main Mossley Hollins band at a showcase brass concert.  We hope that as many of them move onto Mossley Hollins they will continue to learn how to play a brass instrument and join the Year 7 band as many of our former pupils have.  

We also provide Choral tuition for one class a term. In the Autumn term this will be Year 3. In later terms, Year 4 and Years 1 and 2 will have the opportunity for whole class choral tuition.

School pays for both the Brass and Choral tuition but they are arranged through the Mossley and Carrbrook Schools' Partnership.

Class teachers in Year 1 and Year 2 teach children the basics of reading musical notation through learning to play the recorder. 

We also have a range of peripatetic music teachers who come in to provide individual and small group music lessons on instruments such as the piano, the violin, the cello and the guitar.
