Music

At Stanton Road, we teach Music to inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression and it can play an important part in children’s personal development. Music reflects the culture and society we live in, and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world they live in. Besides being a creative and enjoyable activity, it also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community. We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music.

Music is taught via discrete lessons on the timetable as well as being planned into our cross-curricular topics, where appropriate.  Pupils have further opportunities to develop their skills through a range of peripatetic sessions that we offer including: violin, guitar, flute, clarinet and ukulele lessons.
