Marianne Tyler Brown, our music teacher at Vita et Pax , combines her expertise as professional musician, teacher of cello and piano alongside her class music teaching. Each year group from nursery to year six receives weekly music lessons exploring music theory and history, Kodaly method, composers, practical music making and singing. Colourful ukuleles, recorders, percussion and keyboards are all regularly used in class alongside Marianne’s cello and other string instruments. There is a weekly school orchestra and choir and children are encouraged to take their place as music conductor and become involved with the many musical performances that take place in the school and in the church. Trips and participatory musical adventures are planned for The Royal Albert Hall, Arts and Cultural centres, Museums and external performance opportunities to name but a few.
