Discover in a Day – Arts Award

Swindon Music Service  is running a series of one-day workshops / schools visits for Early Years Settings, Infant, Junior and Primary schools.  These workshops cater for your pupils to undertake an Arts Award Discover (in-a-day).  Here, the children will experience a fun day undertaking many Arts activities (with the main focus on Music and Art).  At the end of this project the children will receive a certificate showing that they have completed the Discover Arts Award.  For more information, contact Lynn Hawkins on 01793 401754 or email on: lhawkins2@swindon.gov.uk.  You can also watch a promo video by clicking here.

You can view the evaluation feedback from Peatmoor School  here

 

We have run two very successful days here at the Platform with Peatmoor Community Primary School and St Farncis CofE Primary School.  Either school would be willing to discuss the merits of the day with you.

How do I access good quality music for my child(ren)?

All parents want to give their children the best but if your child is musically talented it can be hard to know how to support tem, especially if you are not a musician.  Should you look for a school with a music specialism, or try to find a good private teacher? And in these cash-strapped times, how can you make your limited resources stretch as far as possible?   Parents whose children are educated in the state sector currently face more than the usual uncertainty.

One way of ensuring you child(ren) get a rounded musical experince at an affordable cost is to join Swindon Young Musicians.  Here, you can access instrumental lessons, ensemble playing and a musical instrument all through an affordable, subsidised membership scheme.  For more information click on this link
