As part of our music curriculum, pupils in years 3, 4 and 5 take part in a ‘Listen2Me2’ programme, provided by the Hampshire Music Service. Children learn a variety of instruments in a whole class setting, such as keyboard, clarinet, trumpet, violin and guitar. The instrument changes on a termly basis.
In addition to our class music curriculum, Twyford St Mary’s is able to provide peripatetic music tuition through Hampshire Music Service. Children are taught mostly in small groups, promoting ensemble skills which can prepare them for joining a band or orchestra should they so wish. Lessons can be provided in brass, woodwind, strings and guitar. An annual charge applies, which can be paid either in one amount at the start of the academic year or in termly instalments. Instruments are available to hire through Hampshire Music Service, so there is no need to purchase any instruments if you do not wish to. Parents and pupils must commit to music lessons for the whole academic year.
If you are interested in signing your child up for peripatetic music tuition, please contact the School Office for more information.
We put on several concerts through the year for parents, giving opportunities for children to perform in front of an audience. Our popular school choir also takes part in Young Voices at the O2 Arena.
