Music

Tobin displayChildren have experience of music both as performers and listeners. They work with a wide range of tuned and untuned percussion instruments. Using these instruments the children begin to make simple compositions upon which they are encouraged to reflect critically. Graphic and 'traditional' notations are introduced to the children as they progress through the school. As well as creating music for themselves the children are given the opportunity to sing, to use music for dance and movement, and to listen to music for enjoyment. We encourage pupils to appreciate and enjoy a range of music from different cultures and traditions, as well as different styles. Musicians are invited into the school to support this work and to extend the children's musical experiences. A wide range of instrumental tuition is encouraged at the school to which parents can make application for their children.
