St Boniface RC Primary School

One who does good

 

  Music and Flute

St Boniface values the importance of music in children’s everyday lives.

Music is taught weekly and children from Year 1-6 receive specialist music teaching during the year. They learn the important musical skills of composition, singing, listening and appreciation.

Whole School - Each class learn hymns and carols and a variety of musical instruments.  Performances happen at end of term Brass concerts, Assemblies and our December Christmas concert at St Boniface Church.

School choir: The choir holds rehearsals every Friday morning at 8am for Key Stage 2 and is free to join. They learn a variety of challenging songs that involves harmonies and they get to develop different vocal skills. The choir also gets invited to sing with other schools for the Catholic Choirs Concert in the Spring term and it is a wonderful performance opportunity for them.

Flute - Flute lessons via Wandsworth Music happen on Mondays or Thursdays during the school day.  Lessons are available either as a part of a group or on an individual basis from Year 2.  It’s a great opportunity to learn an orchestral instrument and also participate in all school concerts. If your child has previously learnt the recorder they will transition easily to the flute as it has similar fingerings. Apply via the Wandsworth Music tab above.
