At Bishopton School, children receive music lessons where they learn about a range of musical styles; from classical music to rock, folk to pop. In addition, pupils also attend weekly singing assemblies where they rehearse songs for concerts and assemblies both in school and at the local church.
Furthermore, pupils have the opportunity to attend peripatetic sessions to learn a musical instrument individually or in small groups for a nominal fee. Currently, pupils are learning flute, guitar, drums, keyboard and violin.
There is also an after school choir that is run each year that teaches pupils singing and breathing techniques in addition to a range of fun and engaging songs. This year the school choir sang at the turning on of Stratford Lights as well as raising money at their local shops. We hope to complete more concerts later in the academic year!
UPDATE: June 2016.
The school were treated to a fantastic assembly involving pupils playing the guitar, flute, keyboard and violin. They played a number of solo and ensemble pieces to an audience of peers and parents. Well done to everyone who took part.
If anyone would like to start learning an instrument, please contact the school office for a tuition letter.
