Music

 

To develop a love of music through performing and coming together as a form of creativity, expression and celebration.

Music at St. George’s Junior School is foremost a practical subject where pupils are actively involved in making, listening to and analysing music with imagination and enthusiasm. We encourage and nurture the expression of ideas and feeling though music with the development of vocal and instrumental skills while learning about cultural, historical and scientific relationships. Our dedicated music room is equipped with a wide range of high quality instruments that facilitate a rich musical diet.

Music is embedded into school life and is used as a vehicle for wider community involvement:

·    we enjoy performances from visitors from a broad spectrum of musical genres;

·    pupils are given a wealth of performing opportunities to a wide variety of audiences both within the school community and beyond;

·    music groups support community activities,performing and sharing their love of music for mutual benefit.

Additional opportunities for peripatetic tuition and extra-curricular activities are available for pupils wanting to develop specific musical interests.
