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 or for no charge.
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 for drumming lessons to start again at Stratton Primary. Currently, there is no available teacher in the area. However, if your child is interested, please sign up on the CMST website. We can then have pupils drumming again as soon as a teacher has been found!
Clarinet or Saxophone - Please register your child, on the CMST website, if they are interested in starting to learn clarinet or saxophone (year 3 upwards).
Flute - There is space for 2 more children to learn flute, Y3 upwards.
Violin – there are spaces for two beginners to start, from Y1 upwards. Mrs Thomas, our violin teacher, has written a letter to explain her lessons. It can be found here:
Guitar – we have space for one beginners’ group to start. Ideally, we need four children in a group from Y3 upwards.
Keyboard/Piano - These lessons are for Y1 upwards. If you would like more information, before you register your child, please contact the keyboard teacher, Jan Man:
Brass – please register your child’s interest, Y3 upwards, and must have their front teeth!
Singing – singing lessons have just started at our school. These are from year 3 upwards.
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.
