Music

We believe every child has the right to a high quality music education and that the skills children develop through music have a hugely positive impact on many other areas of life and learning.

Singing forms a core part of what we do. All children take part in a weekly singing assembly and have music lessons with their class, in which many areas of musicianship (such as listening, notation, composition) are taught through songs and singing games. 

Children also have the opportunity to sing as part of a choir. Our choirs work towards performances both in and out of school.

We give every child at Brooklands the opportunity to learn an instrument through a year of 'taster lessons' with their class. Children play short concerts each term to share what they have been learning with their families.

Many children and families choose to continue or start learning an instrument with a tutor, either individually or in small groups. Currently, instruments we are able to provide tuition for at school are:

  • Guitar
  • Keyboard
  • Violin
  • Saxophone
  • Trumpet

Lessons take place during the school day, and are taught by Leonie, our music specialist, or instrumental tutors who work on behalf of Greenwich Music Hub.

We believe that children can experience the enjoyment and satisfaction of performing as part of a group right from the very first stages of learning an instrument.
