Stringing together new skills

By Lauren Vilanova

Year 3 String Programme

As part of weekly music lessons, Year 3 students are participating in the String Immersion Programme, playing violin, viola or cello. This programme enables students to learn the fundamentals of their instrument and develop skills in note reading, and aural and rhythmic skills.

Further to this, students learn to work together in a supportive environment, ahead of performing at the end of the Semester.

Playing a string instrument at a young age targets fine and gross motor skills, providing deep sensory input, and strengthening the communication pathways between the left and right hemispheres of the brain.

Our talented Year 3 students will feature at the Winter Concert on Thursday, 29 June at Our Lady of Dolours Church, Kingswood. Look forward to seeing you there!
