Primary School Music: Tuning up for the new year

The Primary Music team takes us on a trip down Memory Lane with some of the highlights from last year and outlines all the ways your children can be involved in music this year.

Welcome back to another year that is sure to be filled with a host of tuneful, rhythmic and dazzling concerts and events. We look forward to working with your children, building upon their progress from last year and inspiring them to be involved in lots of our musical activities throughout the year.

Here are some memories from the end of last year to get you excited about this year!

FOBISIA Auditions

This year the Fobisia Primary Music Festival will be hosted by the British School of Manila from 21-24 March 2019 and it promises to be a wonderful event with lots of challenge and opportunity for our advanced level musicians.

If your child plays an orchestral instrument - strings, brass, woodwind - or sings, and has reached a level of around ABRSM Grade 2 or equivalent, please help them prepare for an audition in week 2 of school: 29 and 30 August from 2:45 p.m.-3:45 p.m. in the Drama Studio - please warm up in Mrs Alice’s room, E13.

If you are not sure of your child’s standard but think they may be ready for this please bring them along anyway as this is a good opportunity for the music teachers to get familiar with your child’s level of playing.
