Children have the opportunity to learn an instrument in KS2. In September we are offering: violin, recorder, keyboard, drum kit, guitar, trombone, trumpet, tuba, tabla, flute
Children who are more interested in singing/ playing their instrument with others have the opportunity to join the school orchestra and choir, which rehearses at lunchtimes.
The children at Preston Park are given lots of opportunities to participate in various Musical projects.
Well done to all the children who took part in the Young Voices Concert. What a wonderful and fantastic experience for us all. Our chor worked extremely hard to learn so many songs and sounded amazing. I am very proud of their commitment to the school choir and look forward to the next exciting performance we do.
