We are proud of the strong music tradition at Hawes Down Primary School and hope that with each new intake this tradition will continue. We are very fortunate in having many peripatetic instrumental music teachers who visit the school each week to give tuition in the following:

  • Brass instruments
  • Percussion
  • Classical Guitar
  • Piano
  • Violin
  • Clarinet
  • Saxophone
  • Flute

We also offer singing lessons. If you wish your child to be considered for any of these lessons, please complete and return the attached music form. When deciding whether or not to put your child’s name down for music lessons you should be aware of the following:

If your child is accepted for music tuition, the lesson may possibly take place for 15-30 minutes during classroom lesson time. We ask that any work missed is made up at home.

Please only put your child’s name down for one musical instrument ensuring that your child is serious about wanting to learn that instrument.

Once your child has been accepted for lessons, all contact and relevant payment is between you and the peripatetic music teacher. The school is under no obligation to pass on messages between both parties and it is your responsibility to inform the music teacher if your child will be absent from school, ie, for a school trip or a planned holiday.

Chamber Choir: We have recently started a Chamber Choir which is run by David Bullen from LPSB. Children from Years 4 & 5 are invited to audition for the choir and are selected by Mr Bullen. The choir runs every Monday lunchtime. The children learn a selection of different songs and develop their singing skills within these sessions.
