CBSM Junior School

The Junior School at CBSM consists of Friday Club, The Junior Chorale and Junior Instrumental Lessons. Since the CBSM Junior Department started in 1970 it has continued to provide high quality musical experiences for children of Primary School age. In addition to having the opportunity to learn how to sing and play percussion instruments they are also able to avail of tuition on a range of String, Brass and Woodwind Instruments if they are not already being taught by our team of peripatetic teachers in day schools.

Friday Club

This is a fun session for children that are in P3, P4. It gives children an Introduction to musical activities through interesting games, singing and percussion.

The Junior Chorale

The Junior Chorale aims to provide children with a stimulating introduction to music with experienced teachers in a safe, friendly environment. Children have the opportunity to explore the exciting world of music through singing, recorder and percussion. They are given the opportunity to play African Drums, hand chimes, tuned and un-tuned percussion. We are keen to give musical opportunities to children that have a tuneful singing voice who are interested in developing their musical skills.

Aural and Theory Classes

Junior students that are working towards Grade 2 or above on their instrumental studies in CBSM Junior School or with our Day School Peripatetic staff may apply to join a shared Aural and Theory Class.

Junior Instrumental Lessons and Group Activities

Children who are learning an orchestral instrument may be interested in playing in one of our String or Wind Groups that are structured in a way to suit children as they develop their musical skills.

These groups rehearse on Saturday Mornings in the Fortwilliam Centre and Fane Street Primary.

The groups provide children with the opportunity to play a wide range of music suited to their ability and they are instructed by very talented enthusiastic staff. Participating in these groups not only enhances the children’s musical education but also enables them to build friendships with children outside their school network.
