Fun, engaging and creative!
Pupils in the Seniors Group are taught to read, write, perform and compose music, as well as develop vital Aural & Sight Reading skills, all of which combine to create and develop well-rounded young musicians. Pupils are taught to accurately transcribe a rhythm/melody on manuscript that is performed to them, identify harmonic & melodic intervals, sing back a melody, and describe the texture of a piece.
Autumn Term Project | Saint Saens’ Carnival of the Animals!
It’s one of his most popular works, but Saint-Saëns premiered his ‘grand zoological fantasy’ privately. It was written as a bit of fun for friends, and Saint-Saëns even requested that it was never published or performed throughout his lifetime as he thought the work detracted from his ‘serious’ image! Only ‘The Swan’ was published in his lifetime, but the 14 movement piece has now become a cornerstone of classical music.
Each of the music’s 14 movements represents a different animal, including a lion, donkey, and elephant, as well as fossils, an aquarium, an aviary . The music is beautiful, funny, and clever all at once. The Swan, one of the most iconic movements, is scored for two pianos and a cello solo, with the calming cello tune representing the bird’s effortless gliding, and the rolling piano chords paint a musical picture of the swan’s hidden feet, paddling furiously under the water.
Small Tutor Groups
All pupils work at their individual pace, and small Tutor Groups of no more than six children per Tutor ensure a balance of 1:1 attention and group interaction. Pupils are taught using a combination of the acclaimed series of Chelsea Quavers’ Music Puzzles©, the ABRSM syllabus and the Chelsea Quavers Sight Reading Programme©. Pupils participate in a variety of group activities including listening to a variety of music, learning about composers, styles & periods.
Student of the Week!
Each week a cup is presented to a pupil who has shown improvement, commitment, focus and/or kindness and helfpulness.
Each week, we readily encourage those pupils who learn an instrument to perform at Club to fellow pupils and Tutors.
Tracking your Child’s Progress
Each week a summary of your child’s progress is recorded. Upon request, we can provide parents with feedback at any given point during the term.
We prepare those pupils who wish to sit ABRSM Theory Exams from Grade 1 to 5 and beyond. These exams are accredited by OFQUAL and higher grades attract UCAS points. Click here for more information on accreditation.
