Supersonics – Years 4 – 6

SuperSonics is our ‘out of hours’ music school which takes place on Thursdays from 3:30pm to 6:00pm (5:20pm for year 4 members). All children learn to play an instrument and also have a range of lessons that include Samba, Rock School and Music Technology. The children each learn one main instrument for the duration of their time in SuperSonics, from a selection of:
|drums & percussion|
Each term SuperSonics perform a concert to showcase what they have learned that term, to which parents are warmly invited.
Pupils are lent a musical instrument to take home and practise on for the duration of time that they are in SuperSonics; there is no extra charge for this but parents/carers will be responsible for the safe keeping of the musical instrument which is returned to the school in good condition when the child leaves school or SuperSonics. They are expected to practise regularly, and children with the highest practise scores are rewarded with prizes at the end of every term!
