Subject: Music

Music is a universal language that can inspire creativity in all pupils. At The Rookeries, we aim to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of all music, including classical, popular and folk music. We seek to provide them with opportunities to develop their talents as musicians, allowing them to play a range of instruments, compose their own music, listen to and comment on a variety of musical pieces, including those by the great composers, as well as fostering a love of singing.

The school offers opportunities for children to develop their talents in all aspects of music including composition, singing and appreciation. Assemblies are used to enhance the children’s listening and appraising skills. Visiting teachers for violin and samba offer the opportunity for children to take lessons.
