Cambourne VC - Primary Music School
Every week at the Cambourne Music School over 80 children (aged 7-11) take part in exciting musical activities on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Monday Music School (Woodwind & Brass)*
Would you like your child to learn to play Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet or Trombone? If so, sign them up for the Monday Music School. We teach both beginners and improvers.
Each week they get a 30-minute small group lesson, a 30-minute session doing various rhythm-related activities, and games to help them to read music more quickly, and a one-hour band session, with music specifically written for beginners and improvers.
Sessions run from 4-6pm on Mondays, and cost £10 per two hour session (£7.50 for ‘Band only’).
Monday Music School (Orchestra only option)
If your child is already learning an instrument, but would like to come from 4-6pm to join in with the Cambourne Music School Orchestra, as well as getting involved in the other musical activities – they are really welcome to join us.
They can come along to play any instrument (this year we have had flute players, violin players, percussion players…but any orchestral instrument is welcome… ) We will arrange the music for their instrument, and taking into account their approximate standard.
Playing in a band is a great experience, and one of the most fun elements of learning an instrument, so we don’t want the Monday Music School t only be limited to pupils having lessons with us!
Tuesday Music School (Musical Theatre, Choir, Song-writing & Ukulele)*
If your child enjoys singing, or loves being on the stage, then they’ll love the Tuesday Music School.
Sessions include writing a producing a small-scale musical together as a group, and various other singing activities. We also work on small group song-writing skills, and learning to play the ukulele.
This year’s group have written and performed and recorded some excellent songs, as produced a collectively written musical, The Tinderbox.
Sessions run from 4-6pm on Tuesdays, and cost only £6 per two-hour session.
Wednesday Music School (Keyboard or Guitar)*
If your child wants to learn keyboard maestro or guitar hero, then they should come along to the Wednesday Music School.
Pupils will choose to learn one of these instruments, and they can start as a beginner, or they come along as an improver (up to about grade 1 standard). They’ll also do various musical games and activities.
Sessions run from 4-5pm (beginners) and 5-6pm (improvers) on Wednesdays, and cost only £8 per one-hour session.
We have made every effort to keep the cost of these sessions as low as possible, and there are further discounts available for pupils attending more than one group. If your child would like to take part but the cost of the sessions is too high, please contact us, as we may be able to offer some financial assistance.
*If your child already attends one of the other Music School evenings, you are entitled to a further discount.

- All pupils who are in Years 2 – 6 (from September 2020)
