Music is an integral part of life at Willow Bank with a wide variety of musical opportunities available to children. We aim to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music as well as their talent as musicians.
Class music is taught in a well-resourced music room where children are able to sing, play and perform using a wide variety of percussion instruments, recorders and keyboards. They are encouraged to listen to, evaluate and perform many different musical styles as well as explore how music is created in order to create their own compositions. Singing is also an important part of musical lessons as well as whole school singing assemblies.
All Year 4 children benefit from Berkshire Maestros' First Access scheme which provides one and a half terms of musical instrument teaching with instruments provided.
Opportunities such as church services, music assemblies and the annual summer concert are available for all children to share their musical interest and talent with a large audience. We have a number of peripatetic teachers who visit to teach a wide range of, as well as a number of extra-curricular, musical activities.
