At St. Mary's we love to play music and we love to sing. Mrs Tyrrell is our Music and Singing Teacher. Throughout the academic year all pupils will be involved in music and singing sessions, from Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 - playing percussion and sound instruments, to Key Stage 2 - playing in our school orchestra or performing in our school choir and become litergy singers.
Pupils have the opportunity of learning to play the Violin from Year 3. In Year 4 options are widened to include other wind instruments ie Recorder, Clarinet and Flute, brass instruments ie Trumpet and French Horn, string instruments ie Cello and Guitar, Keyboard and Piano. Peripatetic music tutors from Warwickshire County Music Service come into school weekly to teach the above instruments and music bills are issued termly.
Our school choir performs locally throughout the year at the Studley Village Hall, Coughton Court's Winter Festival, St. Stephen's Church and Redditch Ecumenical Centre supporting the Redditch Choral Society and the Primrose Hospice Choir.
All pupils sing and play at Christmas plays and productions, Years 5&6 perform a wonderful annual Christmas Carol Concert held at St. Mary's Catholic Church and perform at local festivals and schools. Our annual end of summer concerts are always a great occasion, performed in front of parents, guests, pupils and staff.
