We are very lucky to have one of the country’s most respected Brass players, Mr Peter Christian, in our school to teach children Brass as an extra curricular activity.
As a result of this, we have had one of the best Primary School Brass Bands in the county too. In the past they have cut a number of CD’s and performed at prestigious events at venues including RMCM and the Bridgewater Hall.
Learning music is a fulfilling and very rewarding activity and studies have linked the ability to learn music and success in school work especially maths activities.
As this is an extra curricular activity there is a small charge of just £45.00 per term (that equates to about £3.00 per lesson). There is no charge for the hire of an instrument. All we ask is that you take care of it. Other schools do charge a lot more, around £60- £90 per term as well as a hire charge. We try to keep the costs down as much as possible as we do feel that activities like this help in the education of the whole child.
If you wish for your child to start brass lessons please contact Mr Christian via the school office.
