Music

Hollesley School has a proud tradition of involvement in music, confirming its place in the broad and balanced curriculum of the school.

All children have a singing-session each week and their enthusiasm for it shows as they often sing in concerts in school or, for example, with the WI and at BT, Martlesham.

From Year 4 children are offered trumpet-lessons as part of their curriculum-music and this can lead to other brass-instruments being taught (euphonium, trombone etc).

Clubs in school or after-school include recorder, singing, trumpet (and private piano-lessons).

The school seizes every opportunity to showcase the children's musical skills:

  • for 5 of the last 8 years the trumpets have been included in the prestigious "Celebration of Schools' Music" at Snape Concert Hall,
  • as part of the BBC's 10 Pieces project children played brass and pitched percussion, again at Snape,
  • the Trumpet Club is often asked to play at summer fairs, carol concerts and so on,
  • unusually, trumpets have even played on Aldeburgh beach,
  • each year the older children have the chance to sing with other schools in the Farlingaye High School choral concert
