Ks3 curriculum

Music

Music is essentially a practical subject and it is hoped that all students gain understanding and enjoyment through a variety of activities. We are very lucky to have a superb, large music department, which comprises a teaching/performing room, a music technology suite, a recording studio and several practise rooms. 

Students are given a broad range of experiences, developing their appreciation of music, and their understanding of how music works. Students develop their knowledge of melody, harmony and rhythm through engaging practical lessons, which make use of old and new technologies. These include use of Apple iMacs and iPads with Garageband and MIDI keyboards, guitars & basses, as well as the most important instrument of all, the students' own voice.
