Musical Foundations

Musical Foundations is for children aged 4-5, and is designed to provide a platform into our Foundations Strings programme.

Musical Foundations

    • Age 4 – 5
    • Saturday 12.30 – 1.15pm
    • Termly Fee: £70 (2 terms)
    • Bursaries are available

Your child’s musical journey starts here! Children of reception class age in school progress through a series of musical games, songs, rhymes and movement activities. Children acquire the musical skills which they will later draw on when they begin to learn to play an instrument. Each session lasts 45 minutes per week.

In the summer term the children are introduced to the violin, viola, cello and bass so that they can choose which instrument they would like to learn to play as part of Foundation Strings.

Term Dates:
Summer 18/19 schedule

Autumn 19/20 schedule
Spring 19/20 schedule
Summer 19/20 schedule
