Music at St Teresa's 

Music plays an important role at St Teresa's School. Through the Charanga Scheme, children explore different styles and music genres by singing, performing and playing the instruments.  Our weekly hymn practice, class assemblies and school masses are filled with fantastic singing performed by our wonderful children.

As part of our curriculum learning we also engage with music in class and have a range of instruments that we can play and learn about. Also, our children have the possibility to learn how to play the piano and the guitar.
