Our Music Vision

At Preston Park, we understand that learning in a creative way is important for a child's development. Studying music is a great way to learn about the world around us and develop our understanding of different cultures. It also enables us to work independently and with a team, and gives us many opportunities to explore, reapply and share our ideas.

Class Music Lessons

Every child, from Year 1 to Year 6 will be taught music by a speacialist teacher. These lessons take place in our new Music Room. Lessons are taught in line with the new National Curriculum and also link closely with the Creative Curriculum topics, taught by the class teacher.

In KS1, children will be taught to: use their voice expressively whilst learning songs and chants, learn to play a variety of percussion instruments, listen to and discuss music, and create thier own music.

In KS2, children will be taught to: improvise, compose, listen and appraise, write music and perform. In addition to this, they will learn about the history of different musical styles.

Instrumental Lessons

In Years 3-6, children have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. Guitar, keyboard, drum kit, flute and violin are available this year.

These lessons take place during the school day and children learn in small groups with a tutor from Brent Music Service. There is a charge for these lessons.

If you are interested in your children learning a musical instrument, pelase speak to a member of staff in the office.

Extra Curricular Activities

Our school choir meets on a Monday lunchtime for rehearsals. It is a great way to meet new friends, learn new songs and it is great fun.

We take part in many performances throughout the year: Black History Showcase, trips to Brook House Nursing Home, concerts at Wembley Arena and the O2 Arena and end of term assemblies in school. The choir have also taken part in the bi-annual Brent Primary Choir Competition and previously, were given a Gold award.

If your child is in Years 4-6 and they are interested in joining, ask them to speak to Mrs Joslin in the Music Room.
