At Claremont, we are very proud of our amazing Steelband.
In Year 4, children are given the opportunity to audition for our Steelband.
These children then learn how to play one of the pans during their weekly lesson during Year 5 with a music teacher from One Education. The children learn a variety of songs before performing during some of our weekly assemblies.
Once in Year 6 the children become part of our performance Steelband. They continue to learn their instrument and develop their ability to play together as a band. The Year 6 will perform a number of their songs during weekly assemblies.
Our steelband has also been asked to perform at a number of events outside school such as:
- Manchester Windrush celebration
- The Great Get together with the Jo Cox Foundation
- One Education Manchester Music Showcase at the Royal Northern College of Music
