We offer the following music lessons at school taught by peripatetic teachers :-
In addition, we are pleased to have Rocksteady work with us at Cookham Dean that brings groups of children together to form pop groups.
If you would like your child to have any music lessons, please see contact the office for further details.
In addition, year 4 receive percussion lessons throughout the whole year from Berkshire Maestros and subsidised by tickets sold at our Musical Soiree in the summer term.
All children across the whole school will have a chance to learn to play a percussion instrument, the recorder and the ukelele by the time they leave Cookham Dean in Year 6.
We also have a very strong choir in KS2. Our KS1 choir meet on a Monday lunchtime. Our KS2 choir meet on Wednesday at 9.05 and currently has approximately 90 children. These children have opportunities to perform at the 02, Cookham Arts Festival and Maidenhead's Got Talent as well as in our local elderly people's homes.
Hymns are sung during our Monday collective worship and Tuesday afternoons we hold our hymn practise
Once again the children sang beautifully at Windsor Castle in St Georges Hall. This year was particularly exciting as it will be the venue for a very special royal wedding. This year was also the largest number of children we have taken - 90 children. This was a first for us and a first for the castle! The children had learnt 15 carols and the flute trio sounded amazing. The children as usual were a credit to themselves and the school.
What an amazing day we had at the 02. We left school, very excited, to travel up to London to start rehearsals with the rest of the 8000 strong choir! An afternoon rehearsal warmed us up for the concert ahead. The audience arrived and the atmosphere was electric as the torchlights shone and the children sang their hearts out and danced their socks off! Well done to all those that took part. You are a credit to the school
