Music plays an important part in the life of Milverton House School. Every child has a weekly general music and singing lesson, including recorder tuition each week from Pre School. A subject specialist teaches all music.
In addition many of the pupils study an orchestral instrument privately - the school has peripatetic teachers for cornet, trumpet, violin, clarinet, flute, viola, piano and guitar. Associated Board Exams are taken.
Early musical training helps develop brain areas involved in language and reasoning.
The choir have performed on formal occasions and are currently competing in the Nuneaton Festival of Arts. Class assemblies and school concerts are a feature of the school year.
While the feel-good effects of singing have long been recognised, there is growing evidence that it can have a positive impact on a range of physical and psychological conditions.
