Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity...
At Swanwick School and Sports College we encourage students to actively take part in Music, experiencing as many different forms as possible.
Music within the Primary department consists of 2 sessions a week. They include a lesson of singing along to a piano and an instrumental lesson delivered by specialist teacher.
Pupils learn to play a range of percussion instruments including Handbells,Djembes, Bamboo Tamboo and Steelpan Drums. The Primary classes also make trips to concerts, most recently to see a musical adaptation of The Snowman.
Through Key Stage 3 we learn how to play a variety of instruments along with singing, and students are given the opportunity to perform wherever possible.
Over the course of the academic year students study several different topics:
• Percussion instruments
• Stringed instruments
• Music technology
• Genre Studies
We provide students with the platform to express themselves in a highly creative form and take huge pride in their achievements.
All of these topics of study are echoed by the National Curriculum. We also offer a Key Stage 4 Arts Award Qualification for students who wish to continue their musical development.
