By engaging children in making and responding to music, music teaching offers opportunities for them to develop their understanding and appreciation of a wide range of different kinds of music, developing and extending their own interests and increasing their ability to make judgements of musical quality.

Children acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to make music, for example in community music-making, and, where appropriate, to follow a music-related career. As well as music lessons taught by the teachers as part of the curriculum, the school offers extra lessons in keyboard, flute and guitar. Mrs Bowden, our music coordinator also introduced choir practice this year for junior classes as well as a drama club.
