              MUSIC AT TANWORTH IN ARDEN

At Tanworth in Arden we aim to make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. Children develop descriptive language skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. We also teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms.

THE ARMED MAN - WITH ARMONICO CONSORT

 

 

We were delighted to work with Armonico as part of their children's choir in the performance of Karl Jenkin's 'Armed Man' at the Warwick Arts Centre on Wednesday 10th November. It was a moving and special experience for the children who were a part of our school choir on the day. To see some of the pictures from the event, please click on the link below.

FORTISSIMO! - Our School Band

 

 

We have recently formed a school band, which was named by Toby in Year 5, with the logo designed by Amelia J in Year 3. We have ukeleles, flutes, keyboards and percussion being played by children in Years 3-6, who have made a great start, most having never played as part of a band before!

Despite having had to take a break in rehearsals due to a rise in Covid cases, Miss Baxendale created tracks and videos for the band to practice at home. We have then been able to come together in the prayer garden to record them for you. Please listen below to 'Tanworth Tango' and 'We 3 kings'.
