Pupils play up a storm in Sevenoaks with MusicPlus

We love shouting about how great our teachers and their lessons are. However, something even better is to hear that from the people who are receiving the lessons themselves!

That’s why we were delighted to hear from the team at Sevenoaks Primary School. One of our fantastic salaried teachers, Rosie Phillips, has just begun whole-class violin lessons for their Year 4 students as part of our county-wide MusicPlus programme. 

We’ll let the Sevenoaks team tell you more… 

“Year 4 students at Sevenoaks Primary School are absolutely loving their first violin lessons with the MusicPlus programme! Every Friday, Rosie Philips from Kent Music has been delivering a series of fabulous and exciting lessons for the children to learn basic violin skills and techniques.  

Sevenoaks Primary School is a three-form entry school; it was really exciting when nearly 90 violins arrived over the Easter holidays!  

The children have already learnt about the four strings, pizzicato and arco techniques, and have enjoyed performing some simple tunes as an ensemble.  

Thank you Kent Music! 

Quotes from some of our Year 4 learners: 

This is SO cool! I love my violin!” 

I have been practising LOADS – my mum and dad are so impressed!” 

I want to play the violin when I grow up.”” 

We’re so delighted to hear such lovely stories from the year 4 pupils and can’t wait to follow their musical journey from here!  With the level of commitment and enthusiasm they’re already showing, we’ve no doubt they’ll move on to great things.
