At The Dassett, children are given an opportunity to learn music both within the curriculum and through extra-curricular tuition.
We are able to offer tuition on a huge array of instruments. Our music teacher, Mrs Foxwell, offers excellent tuition for piano, saxophone, flute and clarinet. There is a charge for these lessons. There is also a free violin school that takes place at the Village Hall where children are loaned the instrument.
During the Summer Term we have musical assemblies, where our pupils perform alongside their tutors. Every child who learns an instrument is invited to participate in these, and they are open to parents and other visitors. On a Monday, we have a celebration assembly. Children who are learning a musical instrument are encouraged to sign up to play the rest of the school in to the assembly.
Each year there are four performances. At Christmas the children in Reception and Years 1-2 each present a nativity. At Easter the children in Years 3-4 present a musical play and in the summer years 5-6 present a play.
