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
The children have an opportunity to sing at Windsor Castle at Christmas in St Georges Hall. It is a very special occasion with plenty of photo opportunities!
Every other year, we take the whole choir to sing at the 02 as part of the Young Voices choir. It is an incredible experience and a very late night!
We enjoy a chance to showcase our talent locally and this is a wonderful celebration of local talent
Every year in the summer term, we hold our musical soiree. Anyone who learns an instrument at school is invited to share the progress that they have made - soloists, ensembles and the choir. We normally end the evening with everyone joining in a song or two
Every other year, Cookham is alive with The Arts Festival - a celebration of local artists. The 3 schools in Cookham join together to perform a selection of songs and the last few years, songs have been written for the schools by a local composer Rob Castell
