“Music is a language. Every culture makes music which speaks to us in different ways; it creates strong feelings, builds memories and ignites passion. Our children will experience playing an instrument and experimenting with the sounds they make and the joy of learning to play as a group, to listen to rhythm and read musical notation and to evaluate compositions. Children will enjoy singing as a collective group, as a community which sings to celebrate and help us enjoy and remember our days at school. Our aim is to give the children the opportunity to have a high-quality music education which engages and inspires them to develop a life-long love of music, increases their self-confidence, creativity, imagination and provides opportunities for self-expression and a sense of personal achievement.”
In Autumn 2, Crossacres will be auditioning children in Years 4, 5 and 6 for a new choir, led by the talented Miss Werakso! Do you have the Crossacres X Factor?
