Music at Eleanor Palmer

Music is taught by a specialist teacher who lead class music lessons, whole school singing, and instrumental lessons for Years 3-6, two days a week. Class teachers are also central to teaching and modelling singing in whole school and class sessions. Eleanor Palmer has a long and rich tradition of high quality performance across the whole school, includingclass productions of Shakespeare and seasonal performances, which include everybody. From Years 3-5, allchildren learn the violin or cello in small groups led by our music teacher and supported by two peripatetic
teachers. Every child performs in annual Strings Concerts, to showcase their progress and enjoyment. The majority of children continue to learn these instruments in Year 6 – when it is optional – and beyond!
