Music is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. At Froebelian we make music an enjoyable learning experience and encourage all children to participate in a variety of musical experiences.
In our music teaching we aim to encourage children to sing with enthusiasm from an early age, encourage them to work individually and to co-operate with others and to develop confidence in all musical activities.
Music at Froebelian is an important aspect of school life and is taught to all age groups by a specialist teacher. Specialist peripatetic instrumental teachers visit school and pupils are encouraged to learn an instrument, including voice, in addition to the recorder.
All classes are involved in Christmas productions, our Spring Festival of the Arts and the Summer Term musical production for the Juniors as well as a number of other events during the school year, including Harvest Festival, Remembrance and class assemblies. Music plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community and provides opportunities for all children to be creative, play, perform and enjoy music, both individually and in groups.
Our extra curricular groups include a school choir, orchestra, string orchestra and samba band, as well as other ensembles that rehearse during the year for performances.
“In music I have accomplished my goal of improving my singing
and I am now able to sing on stage with conviction”
