Music lessons at The Willows are taught by a music specialist Mr Ben. During their one to one lessons, children will have the opportunity to learn how to play the keyboards, recorders, ukuleles, xylophones and other percussion instruments.
All lessons include theoretical and practical knowledge, and this gives the pupils the opportunity to use and play on tuned and untuned instruments.
All topics are related and linked with other curriculum areas and the main topic of each year group. By the time children leave our school, they will be able to discuss and describe a piece of music using wide ranging musical terminology and vocabulary.
As well as our weekly music lesson, all year groups participate in our singing assemblies where pupils are taught breathing and singing techniques.
Throughout the year, students experience a variety of visits, performances and workshops from various performance artists. As well as this, students are given the opportunity to showcase their development in skills in our annual The Willows Talent Show!
