Music at Heathbrook
We believe each child deserves a musical education so that talent is nurtured and aptitude developed. We continue to place great importance on music in the curriculum and see it as a creative and social art to be enjoyed. We know music education brings a multitude of disciplines to children’s learning including listening, counting, co-ordination, co-operation and confidence. In our teaching of music we promote and value enrichment and equal opportunities for all our pupils.
Our specialist music teacher works with every class each week in a spacious and well-resourced music room. Children are taught to sing and perform a wide repertoire of songs from Nursery onwards. They learn to compose and play on tuned and untuned instruments and have the opportunity to learn the violin, clarinet, flute, guitar, djembe, ukulele and recorder as well as be part of our orchestra. We also have a choir.
Instrumentalists take the opportunity to practise at lunchtime and all are encouraged to perform. Our annual musical event, held at the Omnibus Theatre, showcases our orchestra, bands, choir and soloists. Other musical partnerships include the Southbank (we are an Associate School), the Lambeth Music Service and one of the school councillors’ chosen charities Spare Tyre.
