Music plays an important part in the life of Amport School. In addition to the music curriculum, all children from Year 2 onwards learn to play the descant recorder. This sets them up for future learning of orchestral instruments from Year 3. We have access to visiting peripatetic teachers who deliver lessons on stringed, woodwind and brass orchestral instruments along with keyboard and guitar. Older children are given the opportunity to join the Andover Area Ensembles run by Hampshire Music Service.
We often take part in Key Stage 1 and 2 Recorder Festivals and Vocal Festivals.
Children from Willow and Rowan Classes put on a production in the Summer Term for their families and friends. This Summer it was "Mystery at Magpie Manor". Past productions have included Three Cheers for Mrs Butler!, Aladdin Trouble, Cinderella Rockerfella, Hoodwinked, The Emerald Crown,The Blue Crystal, Alice the Musical and Wind in the Willows to name just a few.
