Music is a crucial and engaging part of every childs’ education and covers the three National Curriculum strands of the subject: Performing, Composing and Listening and Appraising. 

Music is important for a wide variety of reasons as it develops a broad skill set and transferrable skills applicable in all subjects.  Musical training helps to develop language and reasoning, increased hand-eye coordination and motor skills, pattern recognition particularly relevant in maths, fine-tuned listening skills and development of creative thinking.  Most importantly, music develops social skills such as teamwork, self-confidence and the ability to interact with others on an emotional level, particularly through performance.

Students will engage in a vibrant curriculum, not only learning an instrument, but developing their knowledge of music theory through keyboard skills.  They will also begin to use software such as Garageband and Sibelius in order to create their own compositions using professional tools.  Students explore different styles of music, taking a close look at polyrhythms and syncopation. Composition is focussed on and students are encouraged to improvise their pieces to create new, imaginative works using extended chords and chord structures.
