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.
Musical Enrichment Programme Autumn Term
Our Musical Enrichment Programme has been developed to deliver a broader musical education, beyond the limitations of the school curriculum. Projects for this term are as follows: 8 Sep Baroque, 15 Sep Classical period, 22 Sep Romantic Period, 29 Sep 20th Century Composers, 6 Oct Minimalism, 13 Oct Ballet, 3 Oct Opera, 10 Nov Pop Timeline, 17 Nov Broadway, 24 Nov Film Music, 1 Dec Christmas Carols & The Nutcracker.
Small Tutor Groups
All pupils work at their own individual pace, and small Tutor Groups of no more than six children per Tutor (often less) ensure a healthy 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 fun and lively group activities and games including listening to different styles of music, learning about composers & musical periods, orchestral families, seating etc.
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. This is particularly important for those sitting practical exams or preparing for a concert at school. Pupils enjoy regular Tutor demonstrations and performances a variety of instruments including cello, piano, violin, bassoon, guitar (electric & acoustic), trombone. This gives pupils the opportunity to get up close and try out a number of instruments.
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. Integral to the Saturday Club syllabus is an education in Aural development, Sight Reading and Sight Singing – all of which have an important role in the ABRSM Practical exams.

Claire Meyer [Principal] is simply one of the most extraordinary educators I have ever met. She has carefully crafted a bespoke curriculum & the Chelsea Quavers’ teaching style I believe to be the future of music education & teaching in general.
