I wrote to invite you to sign up your child for music tuition in September 2022, something I know many of our students would like to do.
By signing them up for musical learning in the new academic year we can give your child the opportunity to learn a brand new skill, or continue on their learning from this academic year, as well as extending the learning they would be doing in classroom music lessons.
As you may already know, at Newman RC College our music lessons are delivered in our purpose-built practice rooms, located within the Expressive Arts Zone of the college building. Signing up to this provision would give your child a 30-minute lesson, once per week, in which to develop their musical skill. These sessions would be scheduled on a rota system so that pupils should not miss the same 30 minutes of learning each week.
Music is a great way to make friends and take part in the return of the performance opportunities we can offer to pupils. Examples of past performances include: school concert, annual Christmas caroling trips to Asda & The Trafford Centre, school productions of ‘Oliver!’, ‘Annie’, ‘Little Shop of Horrors’, and ‘Beauty & The Beast’, winning prizes at Oldham Schools Music Festival and musical tours abroad of Belgium, Germany and France.
The disciplines we can offer are:
Brass: Trumpet, Cornet, Horn, Euphonium, Trombone, Tuba
Upper Stings: Violin, Viola
Woodwind: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Bassoon
Percussion: Drum Kit
Voice: All singing styles and voice types [musical theatre, pop, etc.]
Guitar: Acoustic guitar
Please note that we cannot offer a loan of a keyboard or drum kit. Pupils expecting to take part in this provision from September would require an instrument to practice on at home. All other disciplines would be issued with an instrument at the start of the academic year.
Please note that places are filled on a first come first served basis so the sooner you return a completed contract the more likely it is your child will be able to commence/return to music lessons in September 2022. Also, please remember that your child doesn’t already need to be learning an instrument in order to sign up for lessons.
In order to access a contract for this provision use the buttons below to either download a copy of the form to fill in and print yourself, or request that a copy is posted to your home address.
Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me on the number below.
