Music

We want our children to find their music learning motivating, interesting and stimulating.

They discover music through singing, movement, dance and instrumental activities. In their lessons, children explore the main concepts of music (rhythm, melody, texture, tone, colour, dynamics and form) through the elements of composing, performing, listening and appraising.

Curriculum music is enhanced by a variety of opportunities to participate in lunchtime and after school activities such as guitar groups, ensembles and the Lower and Upper School choirs. Around a third of the pupils receive individual music tuition (guitar, violin, drums, piano, recorder, flute, saxophone) from visiting music teachers each week and children are encouraged to perform in assemblies to showcase their talents.

A carol concert is held before Christmas, and both Lower and Upper School classes prepare and perform a musical show during the year.
