Our aims are to encourage children to take an active part in music making and to promote their musical development.

The emphasis is on participation and children are encouraged to create accompaniments and invent compositions using their voices, bodies and a variety of tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments. Children listen and respond to live music and recordings from a spectrum of musical genres.

School productions give pupils the opportunity to perform in front of an audience. These invaluable experiences help to develop their self-confidence.

The children will take part in singing and playing instruments (including ukulele and recorder in Year 2), developing rhythmic skills and learning to appreciate music.
