The quality of our music provision is something we are very proud of at Earlswood. We employ music specialists Andrew Scullin and Amber Jones, to work with all the children and support our teachers. From our music groups and choirs, to our one to one tutors from Surrey Arts, there are an increasing number of opportunities to get involved with music at Earlswood, regardless of ability.
We are lucky enough to have our own music room and a wealth of instruments and resources. We use digital equipment to expand the student’s knowledge of composition and structure and incorporate more in depth techniques such as audio technology using our chrome books and recording facilities.
Every year group has a great deal of exposure to music throughout the academic year whether it’s singing and rhythm work with the Infants, building instruments, learning the ukulele or composing and recording , music will always provide something new and exciting to engage the pupils.
We offer four different choir groups across the Federation. Our choirs take part in several exciting events throughout the school year. These include a carol concert at St. John’s church and the Primary School Music Festival at The Dorking Halls.
Our choirs pride themselves on being inclusive. Even if your child isn’t confident in their ability to sing, we provide the perfect environment for them to build their confidence and improve their singing technique in a fun and friendly way.
Please bear in mind that we expect all members of the choir to participate in all of our performances - it is quite a big commitment but thoroughly worth it.
Junior School Band
Our band is for pupils with developing music skills. They have opportunities to perform along with choir at community events. They also get opportunities to create their own sound together on a regular basis.
