At English Martyrs, we want music lessons to be fun and inspiring; engaging the children with songs, lyrics and movement. We want the children to feel confident, reflective and expressive, developing their own appreciation of music with the opportunities we provide as a school.
Through our music lessons children are actively involved in a wide range of musical opportunities. Children develop their singing voices, using body percussion and whole body actions, and learning to handle and play classroom instruments effectively to create and express their own and others’ music. Through a range of whole class, group and individual activities, we aim to give children opportunities to explore sounds, listen actively, compose and perform.
