Welcome

“Music is the social act of communication among people, a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is.” – Malcolm Arnold

 

Music plays an important part of our pupils’ education at Wrawby. From singing the register to whole class productions, music is embedded in the daily routines of school life.

Whole class music lessons are taught throughout school, during the week, by our Music specialist Mrs Robson.

Choir

Our choir are amazing! We meet every Monday morning, bright and early at 8:15am for a positive start to the week. We sing a variety of songs and genre ranging from traditional English folk songs to the latest pop sensation. All children from Year 2 to Year 6 are welcome to join, all you need to be able to do is come every Monday, sing your heart out and enjoy yourself. We currently have approx. 40 pupils attending.

The choir usually performs at school events such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter celebrations. Here are a list of some of the other events we have taken part in

  • Over the past 4  years we have taken part in The Young Voices celebrations in Sheffield with over 5,000 other children.

  • Classics Big Sing at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe

Music Support Service

“You’ve got to learn your instrument. Then you practise,

practise, practise. And then, when you finally get up there on

the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.” – Charlie Parker

 

By employing the Music Support Service we are able to offer a wide range of instrumental lessons to all pupils.

 

Tue - Woodwind, Strings and Percussion

Fri- Brass with Mr Randall

 

We currently have 22 children learning instruments this way.

 

Lessons can be taken individually or in groups of 2 or 3 and children are charged accordingly at very competitive rates. The MSS employs an array of talented musicians who have achieved a high standard of musicianship in their chosen instrument. Lessons work towards ABRSM grades but if you just want to learn for fun, that’s fine too!

 

Just before Easter, each year, a letter is sent home asking if your child would be interested in learning or continuing to learn to play a musical instrument, stating what the MSS has to offer for the coming academic year. From this we inform the MSS of our schools needs and we are allocated teachers and times.

As a school we must agree to a year’s contract and because of this we ask that all children commit to a year of lessons as we, as a school, are unable to subsidise the lessons further. On occasions your child may be put on a waiting list. If you are interested in lessons, please let Mrs Robson know.
