At Baslow St Anne's, we have a real passion for music, providing the children with a broad and balanced education through a wide repertoire of musical genres, history, cultures and traditions.
There are lots of opportunities to listen, play, perform, compose and learn about music here at school which you can find out about below:
Peripatetic Music Lessons
We are fortunate in being able to offer lessons to pupils in brass, woodwind, guitars, electronic drums and keyboard. Tutors are from the Derbyshire Music Partnership (except for drums) and cost around £8 for 20 minutes. Lessons can be individual or shared.
Please note that this is a private arrangement between tutor and parent and if your child will miss a lesson due to sickness or a school trip, it is the responsibility of the parent to contact the tutor otherwise the lesson may be charged. Sarah Walker also offers clarinet, flute and saxophone tuition and free trial lessons are available on request and instruments can be hired at a very reasonable rate – please contact Sarah firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Contact numbers for all our tutors can be obtained from the school office.
Year 4 have the fantastic opportunity to learn an instrument. This year they are learning the violin every Thursday. Please remember to bring your child's violin into school every Thursday and leave at the back of the hall.
Children in KS2 have the opportunity to sing with over 5000 other children at Sheffield Arena, experiencing live music and direction from a conductor, finishing with a concert for a large audience.
Come and join choir every Friday with Mrs Clark in the hall. We will learn how to use our voice and the importance of warming up and posture as well as singing a range of songs to sing and perform at concerts, services and out in the community. This term we are learning:
Seek Ye First
Count on Me
Power in Me
Join Mrs Clark meets every Tuesday breaktime to bop along with your recorder to some tunes.
S. Anselm's Choral Day
Children from Y4-Y6 had a wonderful day of choral tuition at S. Anselm's with a specialist vocal coach. They had to audition in front of Miss Grant and she chose 11 beautiful singers. The children all had a fantastic time singing with other children, learning new songs and singing with a live accompaniment.
