At Cheadle Heath, we use Charanga music scheme to support the teaching of music in the classroom. Children listen to, perform and review music of different styles and from different periods and cultures. They learn to sing, create and compose music on their own and with others, as well as learning musical notation.
Pupils in KS2 are offered weekly tuition in wind, string, brass and percussion via Stockport Music Service. There is a charge for music lessons and instrumental hire although lessons are heavily subsidised by school. Guitar & Ukulele, as well as Keyboard lessons are provided by Front Row Music to children from Year 1 to Year 6.
We work alongside Cheadle Hulme School to provide lunchtime clubs which include samba drumming and choir. This partnership also enables specialist teachers to provide workshops linked to curriculum topics, for example African drumming.
Children have the opportunity to perform in our music evenings twice a year. Our musicians also have also attended concerts at the Bridgewater Hall to play alongside the Halle Orchestra and more recently performed in the Stockport Music Showcase at the Royal Northern College of Music.
