Music

At Old Bexley, we value the part music plays in the children's education.  Through music, the children learn to work with others and understand the value of practice and perseverance.  The children can take part in regular concerts and performances.  

 

Here is a list of the opportunities we offer:

 

CHOIR

  • KS2 choir meets on Wednesdays at 3.30pm-4.30pm in the KS2 Hall.  Anyone is welcome to join.

 

  • The KS1 choir is very popular with the Year 2 children and is held on a Tuesday after school from 3.30pm-4.15pm (after the October half term).  The children in the choir love performing for KS1, and sometimes KS2, and they also join the KS2 choir for concerts.

 

ORCHESTRA

  • The school orchestra meets once a week on a Wednesday from 2.15-3pm.  

 

 

 

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

  • Djembe drumming lessons are offered once a week on a Tuesday lunchtime in KS2.

 

  • There are three days of guitar lessons each week held by Ben Sturge (sturgeben@gmail.com or 07590 413 055).  These are available to any child in KS2 and take place either at lunchtime or after school.

 

  • 1:1 piano and singing lessons are offered to KS2 pupils on a Friday.  Please contact Claire Usher (cbusher1@googlemail.com or 07932 792329) for further details.  

 

  • Currently we offer lessons on violin, viola, flute, clarinet and some brass instruments.  The lessons are taught in small groups by teachers from Bird College.  Please contact the school for further information.

 

There is a charge for musical instrument lessons, but no money is payable for choir or orchestra.
