Learning an instrument at Parley School

At Parley School, children are given the opportunity to have instrumental lessons in….

samba, guitar, ukulele, flute, violin, cello, or clarinet.     

  We have selected instruments that can be hired from the school.

Dorset Music For All

All Year 3 pupils learn how to play Samba and are given lessons from the Dorset Music Service.

We use a variety of percussion instruments having our own selection of Samba instruments at Parley but we are able to borrow larger Surdo drums from the Dorset Music Service                      for a term.

Year 3 give a performance in front of parents and the whole school at the end of the tuition.

Parley First School Choir 

The Choir sing at special events throughout the year and is made up of pupils from several year groups.

We have sung on a number of occasions for the West Parley Memorial Service.

The Choir supported the John Thornton Trust and sang carols outside Sainsbury’s. We raised money for the School as well as supporting the Charity.

During No Put Down Week, we performed a special song 'Read All About It' in front of the School.

The Choir have also sung at a Wedding!


Mr Wolf's Week - Year 1 had great fun composing our own weather music using body percussion and instruments. We chose sounds that we thought represented the different types of weather and worked as a team to perform them.
