Music at Greswold

Music plays an important part in life at Greswold. We have a strong tradition of singing and our pupils enjoy the varied songs in assemblies. There are productions throughout the year with opportunities for the children to perform. Children in Year 4 have a chance to learn to play a brass instrument with their class and normally perform in the Spring 'Brass Blast' concert. We also make the most of the specialist teachers from Solihull Music Service to teach Year 6 to the ukulele. Greswold's school band gives our older children a chance to learn and perform popular songs.
Instrumental Lessons

We offer a range of instrumental lessons to children in Years 3 to 6. The lessons, normally delivered in small groups of 2 to 4, are taught by peripatetic teachers from Solihull Music Service. Below you can see the current list of instruments offered:

Learning and playing a musical instrument is a very valuable addition to children's schooling. Children gain a strong sense of achievement and satisfaction and their self-esteem grows with their ability to perform.

Children taking instrumental lessons also have opportunities to perform to an audience. During the school year there are a number of special concerts and assemblies. We try to invite parents to these where possible to enjoy the results of many hours practising. Instruments are usually provided by parents, although a few of the more expensive instruments may be available for loan from the Authority.
