Music at Bridgewater
Music plays a big part in life at Bridgewater, over and above what is taught in music lessons every week. From weekly music assemblies to termly music concerts, making music and singing is encouraged, particularly by our musical-loving Deputy Head, Mrs Bettridge, who can often be heard singing through our school corridors!
Peripatetic instrument lessons in drums, guitar, piano, brass, violin, flute and recorder are also offered as extra-curricular lessons to pupils in year 3 upwards, taking place during the school day.

Our Music Assemblies Music assemblies take place every Wednesday morning and they provide an opportunity for children to sing as a whole school. A range of songs are chosen throughout the year with links to seasonal and religious events included. Children are invited to play instruments that they are learning during Music Assemblies as a way to gain confidence playing in front of an audience. Mrs Baker, who is a Bridgewater parent, attends our Music assemblies to play the piano and accompany the singing. Music assemblies are always uplifting occasions and parents who are helping in school on Wednesday mornings are always welcome to attend. Staff and parents have all performed at our Music assemblies and this really inspires the children.
