At Orchard, weekly class Music lessons are taught by a specialist teacher and there are opportunities for all children to be in involved in extracurricular music activities. 

Year 3 – children are introduced to the recorder in class lessons during the Summer term. 

Year 4 – children receive Listen2Me lessons from Hampshire Music Service, learning African percussion, violins and ukuleles. 

Years 5 and 6, children can choose to learn an instrument individually or in small groups and everyone learning an orchestral instrument is encouraged to play in the school band. 

There is a strong tradition of singing and choirs at Orchard. Lower School Choir for Years 3 and 4 meets weekly after school and Upper School Choir for Years 5 and 6 at lunchtime. Both choirs sing in the local community and take part in trips to sing further afield.
