Music plays an important and distinctive part in shaping the ethos and culture of our school. Music plays a key part in our daily Collective Worship. Christmas and Summer Musicals (where every child in the school performs) Easter Concert, Rock Concerts and numerous Church Services provide pupils with musical performance opportunities.
Children at Elm C of E are given the opportunity to be part of a Rock Band. This complements the school curriculum with these skills:
Learn to play in a band
Learning an instrument should be fun. Your child can choose from the electric guitar, keyboard, drums or vocals and enjoy playing in a happy, supportive environment with their friends.
From first notes to favourite songs
The Rocksteady Primary Programme is for all children aged 4-11 and is proven to progress musicianship, confidence and teamwork skills with no prior experience necessary.
Lead by real musicians
Your child’s music teacher should also be their role model. Which is why all Rocksteady Band Leaders are carefully chosen, extensively trained musicians who know how to inspire a life-long love of playing music.
With regular live performances
Playing on stage is a huge confidence booster. With termly concerts at school assemblies, your child will be able to show off their progress to friends, teachers and parents with the rest of their band.
In school time
Lessons are 30 minutes long and take place in school time with all instruments provided, making it hassle-free for parents.
And happily affordable
Priced at just £31.25 per month, Rocksteady is one of the most hassle-free ways to learn an instrument on a rolling subscription that you can cancel at any time. It’s risk free too – cancel in the first month and you’ll get a full refund.
