Music at Langton Green School
There are many opportunities for children to develop their musical skills and knowledge beyond our standard curriculum.
Learning a musical instrument - we have experienced peripatetic music teachers who visit the school and teach a variety of instruments during the school day. Currently we offer lessons in piano, violin, singing, clarinet, saxophone, flute, trumpet, trombone, French horn, cello, harp, guitar and drum kit. Tuition on other instruments is sometimes possible, so please do enquire. Enquiry forms are available from the school office and Mr Bartle be pleased to answer any initial queries.
School Orchestra meets on Wednesday lunchtimes in the Autumn and Summer terms, when we prepare for the Christmas production and the Summer concert. All children are welcome, usually from year 3 upwards. At the Christmas carol service, over 75 children played in one band or another! Please speak to Mrs Smith if you are interested in joining in. The orchestra has played recently in workshops provided by Royal Tunbridge Wells Symphony Orchestra at Rusthall Primary School, at the Tunbridge Wells Primary School Orchestra Workshop at St John’s Primary School and at the school concert. Several woodwind and brass players also went the Benenden Summer School Taster Day organised by Kent Music. Orchestra is free of charge to any child who can play and read 3 notes on their chosen instrument and meets on a Wednesday lunchtime.
Senior Choir is open to all children in Years 4, 5 and 6 who are warmly invited to attend choir practice on Thursday lunch times from 12.40-13.10. The choir performs throughout the year at events both within and beyond school, singing a range of repertoire in two or more parts. New singers are welcome at any stage in the year.
