Music is integral to life at Avon House. We provide a high-quality musical education to engage and inspire pupils and develop their talent, believing that every child is a musician. In the process, we increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
From the earliest age our children are encouraged to realize their creative talents. Music is a vitally important and stimulating part of school life, and the children are encouraged to share their music with one another, working together as a team and respecting each other’s playing and singing. There are two choirs: Pre Prep Choir for Years 1 and 2; Prep Choir for Years 3, 4, 5, and 6. There is an ensemble for children learning an instrument who have reached the standard of grade 1 and above. There are regular informal and formal music concerts at school, as well as performances at local venues and churches. Our children work very hard for these events, and parents are encouraged to support whenever possible.
At Avon House, we encourage children to learn a musical instrument, finding the best possible instrument to suit the child. There is a team of peripatetic staff who teach a whole range of instruments including brass, clarinet, drums, flute, guitar, keyboard, piano, recorder, saxophone, ukulele and voice.
Our music department is a significant strength in our school and we enjoy listening to the children as they develop their skills and expertise throughout their time at Avon House.
