Welcome to Music at Tarleton Community Primary School

Music in School


As you may have guessed from the quotes above, music is extremely important to us here at Tarleton Community Primary School, in fact it is so important that we have named our classes after the musical instruments of the orchestra!

We are proud to offer a wide range of music tuition, including drums, piano, brass, keyboard and guitars.  Children are encouraged to share their progress and talents; whether as part of their class music lessons, during assembly or as part of our summer celebration of music concert.


Summer concert 2017

This year's summer concert was held on Tuesday 11th July.  It was an amazing evening where children were able to showcase their musical abilities on instruments such as drums, piano, trumpet, cornet, recorders and guitars.  The choir also sang a selection of songs on the evening - including the song Something Inside (So Strong) which they performed at the One Love, One Voice Concert the previous week.   The evening concluded wih a fantastic family performance by the Banister family and then a group performance of With a Little Help From my Friends; sang by the choir and accompanied by children on guitars and drums.

The Incredible TCP Choir


We are extremely lucky to have an abundance of wonderful, talented and enthusiastic singers here at Tarleton Community Primary.  Choir membership is based purely on commitment and enthusiasm; something our children have in bucket-loads! Lead by Mrs Russmann, our choir meets to rehearse every Thursday 3.30pm - 4.15pm.

In 2016 all our hard work paid off when we were crowned winners of the 'Last Choir Singing' competition.  The competition is open to all KS2 choirs across Lancashire.  

Tarleton Academy Performing Arts Evening

March 2017

17  girls, from year 5 and 6, took part in this year's Performing Arts Evening alongside children from Tarleton Academy and other Primary schools from the Tarleton and Rural District cluster.  We sang Let it be, orignally made famous by The Beatles.  The girls sang beautifully, as you can hear for yourselves below.

Last Choir Singing Competition 2017

Tarleton Community Primary School were proud to take part again in this year's Last Choir Singing Competition.  As always our choir sang beautifully.  Unfortunately so did several other choirs and we were just pipped to the post and didn't make it through to this year's final.  Below are a few of the photographs from the night.

Exciting News!


On Tuesday 25th October our school choir was recorded for a television programme called 'Christmas Nationwide'.  We were filmed singing two Christmas songs and it will be aired on That's Lancashire Channel on Freeview channel 7 - date and time to be announced.


Brass with a Touch of Class!

Brass Bands have been an integral part of Lancashire life for over a decade and here at TCP we are keeping traditions alive!  All of our Year 4 pupils play a brass instrument totally free.  They learn in two class groups and are taught by the Lancashire Music Service in the Wider Opportunities Group which are whole class groups.  

Should a child wish to continue playing in Year 5 and Year 6, the school offers peripatetic music sessions.

The children get the opportunity to perform in school music festivals - something we believe will support their developing confidence resulting in them becoming better learners!!!

Wider Opps


Many of our children learn to play the drums.  This is great for developing rhythm and discipline and is something they find very enjoyable.  Lessons are taught by a peripatetic teacher who comes in weekly.  The children get the chance to perform at events such as the Summer Conert or TCP's Got Talent. Bing ! Bang! Bosh!
