Music is fundamental to all of us. It surrounds us and makes up the tapestry of our daily lives. Music encompasses the ways in which we develop and can tap into places that other subject areas cannot reach.
It works on a physical, emotional, social and intellectual level and thus develops the child as a whole regardless of ethnicity, gender, background or ability. Music is accessible to everyone.
Here at Woodlands, we try and use music to tie the working day together and provide links between activities. It can be used to enhance understanding in other curriculum areas. Through music, children can move from dependence to confidence and independence. Allowing children to access other areas of the curriculum through music can facilitate a wider sense of achievement, personal satisfaction and self-respect across the whole curriculum.
We offer a weekly choir, iPad Orchestra and drumming club. Individual students are also learning to play the Keyboard and other music lessons are available on request.
