Pre-Prep Music

At St Michael’s Pre-Prep, music is fun!

We believe that music is for everyone and that your musical journey should begin as early as possible.

Your child will explore elements of music through singing, action songs and games. They can learn a range of instruments with our visiting peripatetic teachers and take part in our large strings and recorder groups; after school activities include hand bells, musical fun and games, recorder and percussion.

Our 40-strong choir meets once a week. We sing songs that make our parents smile: ‘Mice with Clogs’, ‘Men with Flying Machines’ and ‘How to Deal with Sneezes’! Our musicians have won awards at the Tunbridge Wells Festival, with the choir coming first and second in their class.

We love to perform in concerts and musicals and each year all the children take part in a Nativity. Year 2 make a Christmas cake and parents join us for cake and carols.

Visiting musicians put on workshops for us, such as celebrating Chinese New Year and in African drumming and we go on trips to theatres and concert halls, locally and in London. We sing and play every day in Assembly and listen to music from all over the world, to different composers and styles.
