Music

Music at Lickey

We believe music has a very important role in the life of the pupils and the school. It has the capacity to improve and enrich children’s lives.

Our children learn to appreciate music and have many opportunities to listen to, compose, sing and perform their own music. We enjoy singing! The school sings enthusiastically in singing assemblies and have even made our own CD ‘Our favourite songs’!

Music Award

We were delighted to recently have been awarded membership of Music Mark – this is a national organisation which will offer us ideas and resources which will support our teaching of music. We were nominated by our local Music service who recognise the value that we place on music and acknowledge our dedication and commitment.

 

 Instrumental Lessons

All children from year 3 upwards have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. We currently have peripatetic teachers teaching strings,  woodwind, keyboards and piano, guitar and drums. If your child is interested in learning an instrument please contact Mrs Tomlinson, Music Administrator, via the school office.

Monday –  Cello and Piano
Tuesday – Guitar
Wednesday – Flute, Clarinet and Drums

Updated timetables are published on the music timetable page HERE. Please check regularly for any changes as it is the children’s responsibility to get to their lessons. A fresh timetable will be issued each  term.
