Music gives all pupils an opportunity to develop their musical skills in four key areas: performing, composing, listening and appraising. Music is a unique form of communication: it develops pupils’ creativity, allowing them to explore and try out new ideas. It also provides an opportunity to generalise skills such as imitation and coordination. In addition to regular music lessons, pupils have the opportunity to learn individual instruments and the school runs its own choir.
