Music

The Music Department’s aim is to provide the opportunity for students to extend their own musical interests and skills. Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way students think, feel and act. It brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. Students perform and compose music in different styles increasing their understanding of musical devices, processes and contextual influences..

The schemes of work consist of integrated units that are imaginative and challenging in order to motivate all students who receive one hour of curriculum music a week.
