Music and Performing Arts
Strings at The Aldgate School
Each child has a weekly, whole-class lesson. Special music arrangements are designed that cater for all abilities. During this hour-long session, the children are also taught to sing. Children also have a weekly 'backup' lesson: here they are able to play in smaller groups and focus on particular aspects of string technique.
Each year, several children are invited to take their studies further at either the Centre For Young Musicians, Hackney, or at the Centre For Young Musicians, Morley College.
At Christmas and in the Summer Term, children in the Strings Project play for the whole school at the Strings Concert. Children are also selected to play at important venues such as the Spitalfields Festival, The Barbican, The Guildhall and The Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
We are proud to announce that we are a Music Mark School Member, having been recognised for the dedication and emphasis we put on music tuition for all throughout the school.
Our Talented Choir
|Nothing can prepare you for the sound of thousands of children singing in harmony. Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with accompaniment from a wide range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance.
Below is one of the stunning productions that our team has produced: Devices used the voices of residents from an elderly care home in Tower Hamlets.
