Music is very important at Great Bedwyn.
We are very pleased to welcome back Laura Barker to take over the running of our School orchestra. We also have a vibrant school choir – here is a link to them singing the Great Bedwyn School song:
In Great Bedwyn School, the children enjoy a good introduction to music. As the children get older they have many opportunities to play a wide variety of instruments, some which are taught by the school music teacher and others by volunteers and paid peripatetic teachers.
There are opportunities to learn guitar, piano, flute, saxophone, clarinet and violin. Each week a selection of our musicians have the opportunity to play for the whole school in our Celebration assembly.
We hold concerts throughout the year to celebrate the talents of our musical pupils and many of them often support events that are taking place in the village out of school hours. We performed to a full audience in St Mary’s Church in December at our school Carol Concert.
Many of our children sing in the choir and this takes place sometimes during the school day and at other times it runs as an after school club for children from year 3 upwards.
As well as being heard at concerts the children perform at the local residential homes for the elderly, where their talents are always appreciated.
On January 16th 2017, Year 5 and Year 6 had the fantastic opportunity to perform at the O2 at the Young Voices concert with over 8000 other voices. It was a spectacular event which both parents and children enjoyed.
In Year 3, we offer pupils the opportunity to learn a musical instrument with the peripatetic music teachers who visit our school. These private music teachers operate their timetables, group sizes and prices slightly differently. The music teachers only have a limited number of lesson slots available due to instrumental lessons only taking place outside of lesson time and the Music room space being in high demand.
