Well done to all our BTEC students who were involved in the Heinz57 Gig this week,

it was a great success and we hope you take what you have learned from the experience and carry on producing music opportunities outside of college.

We will aim to get some footage up soon for anyone who missed it, but for now take a look at the brilliant poster that was designed by our students.

Kindermusik at Claremont Centre

A good beginning never ends! How true is that! Our friend Marta and her family joined Soar Valley Music Centre back in 2013. Marta, who was 5 years old at the time, enrolled in the Kindermusik for the Young Child class, which is two  year programme and her little brother joined our Kindermusik Laugh and Learn Family class with Mum and Marta.

While in Kindermusik, Marta learnt to read and write notes, recognise the rhythmic values and apply them on the glockenspiel, the dulcimer and the recorder. She also experienced games and musical samples from a wide range of composers, genres and cultures. At the same time she learnt to listen to her classmates and play along with them as they formed their first Kindermusikorchestra!


When Marta graduated from Kindermusik, she decided to continue her music exploration and learning, with the piano and now the violin too!
