Peripatetic music is organised by Warwickshire Music Services
“Pupils enjoy a very rich curriculum. All pupils learn to cook, play a musical instrument and learn from specialist teachers (particularly in art and music)” – Ofsted 2018
Music is an extremely important part of the curriculum at Clapham Terrace Primary School. All children have an opportunity to take part in a wide range of musical activities, these include: singing, composing using simple tuned and untuned percussion instruments and performing to others. In addition to in-class music lessons, children share their musical talents in assemblies and special concerts. We regularly invite visiting musicians and parents with musical talents in to provide workshops and live music experiences.
We’ve been privileged with a visit from the Royal Quartet (Poland)
who shared their music and taught us about the skills required to be a musician. They are performing at the Royal
Pump Rooms tomorrow at 7:30pm. Here is a sneak peek of their performance. @LeamingtonMusic pic.twitter.com/lF62PquAhI

Throughout the year, there are productions and concerts in school. The choir is open to all and our KS2 children have the opportunity to perform at The Genting Arena in Birmingham as part of the Young Voices choir. We hold an annual music morning in the summer term where children and their parents perform to the school, this is a hugely popular event and allows us to share our love of music with the community.

Instrumental music is a strong feature of the school. All children in Year 5 have the opportunity to learn the flute. As they progress into KS2, peripatetic staff also teach strings, keyboard and drums.
