Radio Devon

20th November 2018
On Tuesday morning Michael Chequer from Radio Devon visited our school to record the choir singing Still, Still, Still, a traditional German Carol, for Radio Devon's Star For Christmas Competition.  The children sang beautifully and were really excited, if a little nervous, about being recorded.  After the recording Michael interviewed some of the children from the choir as well as teacher Rachel Burrough who runs the choir.  He thought how beautifully the children sang and commented on how all the children in the choir sing so well and contribute to the sound rather than it being led by three or four children.  Mrs Burrough then talked to him about how at St Mary's the Kodaly approach to music education underpins their music lessons throughout the school and that as part of this approach every child is considered a musician.  Music is for all and each child is active in their music making.
