Music is a vehicle of personal expression and creativity, and it plays an important part in the development of children. Experiencing the joy of performing and creating music in groups is at the core of the Music teaching ethos at Twickenham Prep. Pupils have specialist class lessons from Reception right up to Year 8 in our dedicated music rooms, and have the opportunity to sing and play a range of instruments together. A wide range of peripatetic music lessons are available. Current instruments offered include vocal training, piano, guitar, violin, cello, drums, ukulele, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trombone and trumpet.
Music plays a key role in important school events such as our harvest festival, carol service, house music competition and end-of-year concerts, which the children really enjoy. Pupils are encouraged to attend musical clubs and these include Pre-Prep Choir, Prep Choir, Jazz Band, String Quartet, Orchestra, Guitar Group, Ukulele Group, Drum Club and Theory and Aural Club. Recently the TPS Choir enjoyed performing at the Royal Albert Hall for the Barnardo’s Charity children’s concert, where they were accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - which was a fantastic event to be a part of!
