Music

Music is a universal language that can engage and inspire pupils and therefore has a central place in the BCB curriculum. Throughout the year, an exciting schedule of concerts and musical workshops provides pupils with the opportunities to showcase their work and talent, both in the school and in the wider community.

BCB offers an extensive music programme that allows students the opportunity to play in groups or sing in a choir. For those interested in taking their musical talents further, we offer individual music lessons for a range of instruments.

Primary School Instrumental Programme

All pupils from Year 1 to Year 5 follow the Primary Instrumental Programme, which is in addition to the music curriculum at BCB. Working in small groups, pupils are introduced to instruments such as the recorder, guitar, brass or woodwind and are taught by music specialists to become fluent and talented musicians.

Individual Music Programme

Pupils with a greater interest in music are encouraged to join the Individual Music Programme in which they receive individual music lessons in their chosen instrument(s) by a specialist teacher.

Singing

At BCB, singing is an important part of the Music curriculum. It is an ongoing skill and from Early Years through to Year 6 singing takes place in almost every single music lesson. By having a vibrant singing culture, we aim for all children to experience the joy of learning to sing individually or as part of a choir.

Primary School children sing in assemblies and often perform a song for their parents as part of their class assembly. Every child in the Primary School is also involved in at least one production throughout the year, where they learn all the songs in a musical.

Ensembles and Orchestra

In order to further develop the skills learned in the classroom, pupils are able to perform in ensembles and orchestra. These opportunities develop a sense of camaraderie and teamwork while becoming better musicians and more confident performers.
