At Key Stage 1 children are encouraged to focus on maintaining a steady beat and rhythm, pitch and composition.  At Key Stage 2 children extend the skills already acquired and develop an understanding of graphic scores and notation.

Children are encouraged to learn an instrument. Currently woodwind, brass,  guitar and piano are taught in school by arrangement with the relevant tutor.
