Music is essentially a practical subject. Children are encouraged to sing, play instruments, compose and work creatively with sound. Through active listening, pupils’ awareness, understanding and appreciation of a wide variety of music are developed. The school provides opportunities for children to take part in a wide range of musical activities and performances, all KS2 children will learn how to play a musical instrument (brass and ukulele) and there are opportunities for children to further their musical education by having private lessons in brass and guitar. We have choirs in both KS1 and KS2. KS2 choir attends many fantastic singing and performing opportunities supported by the Plymouth Education Music Hub. These have also included a joint concert with the African Children`s Choir. The school choir has many very exciting singing events lined up for this year 2020.

Below are some examples of music from the children.
