James Gillespies Primary to STOP all Music Clubs

Posted by Rocio Banyuls on Tuesday, February 20, 2018,
We are very sorry to tell you that James Gillespies primary School has decided to stop all music clubs using school premises from August 2018, due to space restrictions.

The news have come as a great shock to us, especially considering that we have been working in the school for 10 years and have grown a great music community and impacted greatly the life of so many children there, through our many music clubs (Music play Room, Recorder, Ukelele, Guitar, Piano and Voice).

MUSIC LANGUAGE (Theory and Aural)

Posted by Rocio Banyuls on Monday, August 21, 2017,
This term we are going to start Music Language lessons.

Is your child learning an instrument but spends half the lesson trying to read the notes and understand the signs?

Music theory is essential when learning music, which is after all a language. Learning to read, write and interpret it correctly will help students progress much faster and better in their instruments.

We also help them prepare for exams and grades.

Suitable for any child between 8-16, at any level.

Music Club with parents

Posted by Calum Johnstone on Saturday, December 22, 2012,
What a delight having on the last day of term parents and family joining the children in playing all the Music Mind Games that we've been working on all term!

Parents were a bit surprised when they had to put a real effort into being able to play some of the games that the children were so proficient at, and in seeing how the children knew really well about many music theory concepts that they did not know!

It was a real pleasure seeing the parents having fun with the children and the children ...
