Starting at Abercerdin primary October 2014!
CAVMS offers the full range of orchestral instrumental tuition, as well as voice, guitar and drums in Primary Schools.
Typically we start at Junior level, but some schools are happy that beginners start in year 2. Early starters cannot normally play Brass or Woodwind instruments until they have second teeth, but guitar, violin and piano are feasible.
The smaller beginner will need to have a smaller instrument (guitar and violin) and half and three-quarter size instruments are available.
Instrumental demonstrations are a fun and informative way to show what the instruments look and sound like, and generally helps pupils and parents decide what to choose. CAVMS has been demonstrating all instruments successfully since 1993, and it forms an integral part of our academic year.
We deal directly with Parents over fees, easing the administration burden on the school, essentially all we need is an appropriate area to teach and lessons can start.
As a result of demand from several schools, we now offer a P.P.A. cover service, delivering KS1 and KS2 music in the classroom. Many primary school teachers are uncomfortable delivering curriculum music, and it is understandable, without formal training.
CAVMS has several experienced classroom teachers who specialise in the delivery of 'Music Express' one of the most widely used primary education music packages. We can tailor inputs to fit in with your requirements.
