Music at Ashbourne Primary School brings joy, inclusion and self-expression to the fore.

Our work is underpinned by our vision and aims: ‘Nurturing aspiration through happy, creative learning’. Our PRAISE aims are at the heart of every lesson and our focus on the removal of barriers to learning is firmly embedded into all areas of the Music curriculum.

Our children love to sing and will develop the skills and confidence to sing and play together and express themselves freely. Participation is encouraged through direct teaching and extra-curricular choir, bands, performances and individual lessons. Special assemblies feature singing, listening to music and learning about great composers.

All children will learn to play a variety of instruments: untuned and percussion, handbells, recorders and, in Year 6, an orchestral instrument. Our choir, bands and players present several concerns each year, including a large musical production in the summer, and take their music out into the community.

Introducing our Rocksteady Bands!

 We play and sing from memory with confidence!

We play notes on our instrument so that they are clear.
