Music

 

 Music is a much loved subject at Gallions Mount.  The children’s weekly music lessons are taught by an experienced music  teacher, Ms Brown. She also accompanies the children’s singing on the piano during assemblies and school productions. As part  of their music provision, children in some year groups are taught how to play the Ukulele, which they thoroughly enjoy!

 Some children also have one to one music tuition from 3 visiting music tutors, learning how to play  the piano or violin, brass or woodwind instruments. If you are interested in your child having one  to one music tuition, please speak to the office who will be able to advise you of costs and waiting times.

 

 

 

We also have a school choir which is open to all children in Key Stage 2. It is run by Ms Kaur and Zoe and is held every Monday after school between 3:15pm and 4:30pm. Our choir participate in many events and are always looking for new opportunities to perform. In February the school choir attended an event at the O2 called Young Voices 2017 along with thousands of children from all over the UK. They came together to sing songs and perform to an arena full of parents. It was such a great night enjoyed by all children. Recently the choir also took part in an evenings performance at St Thomas More CC School held by the Greenwich School's Music Association. We were joined by four other schools who all performed individual songs as well as combined songs learnt by all children involved. Our school choir has become very popular with over 45 children in attendance. We are always looking for keen singers to join and if this is something you think you will be interested in then please speak to Ms Kaur or Zoe. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Music company Jo Jingles attends our school every other week to work with children in the Nursery  and Foundation Stage. Jo Jingles provides a fun and educational music, singing and movement  experience for young children. The music sessions encourage aural and oral skill development for all  children involved - and they love it! 

Jo Jingles loves to stimulate young minds and teach children to:

 ♫ To play percussion instruments expressively
 ♫ To sing songs
 ♫ To hold a tune
 ♫ To find the rhythm to move and dance to
 ♫ To make new friends
