Yesterday I went to visit Beaumont School music department. I met up with music teacher Mrs Doan so we could plan a presentation that we are giving to a music teachers conference. Before we got to work I had the chance to sit in on a lunch time choir practice. Have a listen!
Everyone at the school is welcome to join choir and they have children from every year group in the school. In addition to the choir they have a Vocal Ensemble which children have to audition for.
They also have lots of opportunities for children who learn instruments to play together. Here is a clip of one of their orchestras rehearsing
Beaumont School are also shortlisted for “Best School Music Department” award and I can certainly see why!
You can have a look at their music blog here It is very different to ours because they are a secondary school.
