St Matthew’s Recorder Band

St Matthew’s Recorder Band

Trafford Music Service is delighted to be working with St Matthews C E Primary School to offer an after school recorder club open to children in year 3-6.

At the club, children develop instrumental musical skills and learn a wide variety of pieces as well as take part in musical games which enhance their musical understanding , they will  perform to an audience once per term and will generally have fun! Playing and instrument has great health benefits as well as helping your child to develop confidence and form stronger relationships with their peers and with adults in school. Learning music has also been shown to support and improve children’s attainment in other areas of the curriculum, particularly in literacy and numeracy.

The club will start after October Half term on Monday 6th November and will run for 7 weeks until 18th December.  On the 18th December there will be an open rehearsal/concert which parents/family will be welcome to attend.   This club will run all year during term time and there will be 11 sessions in Spring and a further 11 sessions in summer term.  St Matthews are keen that this club is open to all junior age children who wish to attend and so it is being heavily subsidised by school.

Time: 15.15 – 16.15
Cost: £1 per week plus for the club plus  £2.50 initial cost of the recorder.
