Welcome to our Musical Performance page. The pupils at Stratton Primary School enjoy weekly music lessons. In these sessions they have many opportunities to sing, compose, improvise, play instruments and discuss a wide genre of music.
An important element of music is performance. We will add videos to this page of children performing and sharing their learning from their music lessons. There will also be videos of children who learn musical instruments with our visiting peripatetic teachers.
We hope you enjoy these performances.
Would your child like to learn a musical instrument?
There are many music lessons taught in our school by music teachers from Cornwall Music Service Trust. Lessons cost as little as £5.36, for a 30-minute lesson, if there are 4 or 5 pupils in the group. If your child is eligible for free school dinners, they probably will be able to have their lessons at a highly reduced rate
If your child is interested in learning any of the instruments listed below, please visit the CMST website and register your interest.
Drums – we would love to have more children learning the drums at Stratton. Currently there is only one pupil, and it is not viable to have a visiting drumming teacher. If your child is interested, please sign up on the website so we can have pupils drumming again!
Recorder/Fife - there is space for a beginner group from Y1 upwards.
Flute - There is also space for 2 more children to learn flute, Y3 upwards.
Please also register your child, on the CMST website, if they are interested in starting to learn clarinet or saxophone (year 3 upwards).
Violin – we have space for at least one beginners group to start. Ideally, we need four children in a group from Y1 upwards. Mrs Thomas, our violin teacher, has written a letter to explain her lessons. It can be found below.
Guitar – we have space for at least one beginners group to start. Ideally, we need four children in a group from Y3 upwards.
Keyboard/Piano - we have space for a beginners group to start. These lessons are for Y1 upwards. If you would like more information, before you register your child, please contact the keyboard teacher, Jan Man:
Singing – if there is enough interest, we are hoping we can start both brass lessons and singing lessons with a visiting teacher. Both of these lessons are from year 3 upwards. For brass lessons, the children have to have their front teeth!
Soundwaves South West and Music Therapy Trust, a locally-based charity, provide free loans of musical instruments to many of our children who receive music lessons in school. This also makes learning an instrument more accessible.
