Music at Micklem


'Being a musician has made me feel more grown up.'


'On music days I am really happy and excited about coming to school.'


'When I play my tenor horn and it makes a sound, it makes me feel excited inside.'


'I feel proud to be a musician.'


All the children have music lessons in class and singing assembly on Wednesdays, and we have lots of children learning instruments too. There are children from Year 3, 4,5 and 6 learning to play the African drums, children from Year 4, 5 and 6 are having brass lessons with Mr Horton and the whole of Year 3 are all learning the recorder with Miss Fairweather! We also have children from Year 3 - 6 learning the guitar with Mr Whitworth and children in Year 4 and 5 learning the clarinet. Look out for all of them playing in assembly soon!



Choir is on every Wednesday lunch time and is open to children in years 3 to 6, there is no limit on numbers and children can join at any point in the year. 

Year 5 and 6 had a visit from Hemel Hempstead Band. They demonstrated their instruments and then the children had a go!
