Music plays a very important role in our school. We believe in giving children the opportunity to develop their musical awareness and skills by receiving a weekly music lesson as well as having many other opportunities to express their musical flair. Mr David Gilson is not only a multi talented musical genius who performed at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, but also our school music teacher. The children are taught a range of skills which progress across each year group. (See link to music skills progression below)
North Yorkshire County music service provide offer a range of services to our school. Every Tuesday individual guitar lessons are offered to the children and on a Wednesday small group woodwind and brass lessons take place.
On top of the above, Musicworks offer keyboard and drumming lessons to our children every Wednesday and Thursday. This cumulates in a musicworks assembly at the end of each term where the children can showcase their talents!
Music plays a huge part in our school drama productions. We give the children the opportunity to showcase their skills in our productions, helping them gain confidence performing in front of an audience.
