Music: All the children sing several times each week. We have three choirs: Infants, Primary and 4th, 5th and 6th class children can audition for the John Colet Choir.
The repetoire is selected for its
beauty, challenge and fine quality
It includes, for example, adapted choruses from Handel’s Messiah, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Mozart’s Magic Flute and Bastien & Bastienne.
As part of our music training at John Colet we give every child the opportunity to play a musical instrument and to learn to read music notation. This occurs in 3rd and 4th classes, and all children learn the recorder during school hours, in their class music lesson.
Private Instrumental and Vocal lessons are held in the Music Centre during school hours by highly qualified and experienced musicians.
Instruments include: Clarinet, Flute, Guitar, Piano, Voice, Violin, Viola, Cello.
(Please note that private music lessons during school hours are not permitted for Lower 1st students).
