Band and Choir

Plumcroft Band

  • Band rehearse every Monday after school and we learn the music by ear
  • We love performing and play regularly in assembly and for school events
  • Band is a progression route for children who continue with an instrument after First Access music lessons in Year 4
  • Our year 6 trumpeters have done ABRSM Jazz Grade 1
  • We have performed at the Royal Greenwich Music Hub Gala at Blackheath Halls and at the Music for Youth Festival at the Royal Festival Hall where we got great feedback

We like to play popular tunes, sometimes suggested by the children. We play music that is well known and we aim to play authentically – we often listen to the original tune on YouTube. We foster a positive attitude to improvisation and encourage solos where appropriate to the arrangement.
