We aim to offer a high quality music education at St. John’s. To assist us with this we employ a music specialist who delivers music lessons throughout the school and supports class teachers with their lesson planning. Our staff deliver high quality lessons which allow the children to:
- perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
- learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
- understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
Woodwind, strings, piano, drums and singing are available within school once a week for key stage 2 children. Children can also learn to play the recorder. For further details, please contact the school office.
