A free club that offers children the chance to familiarise themselves with woodwind instruments, aimed at Years 3 and 4, children are able to take part for a term ahead of making a decision to progress or choose an alternative instrument.
Similar to woodwind club, this offers Year 5 and 6 children the chance to familiarise themselves with brass instruments, taking part for a term ahead of making a decision to progress or choose an alternative instrument.
As soon as children are playing their instrument they’re invited to join, the expectation is that those learning wind instruments outside of School will also participate.
