Year 3 Music

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.’ (Plato).

Music provides wonderful opportunities for collaborative projects, self-expression and performance. The boys learn how to compose, with a focus on rhythm and pitch. This subject is well-loved at Lower School where the foundations are set for a life-long appreciation of music and the expression and wellbeing it brings. The boys are taught by a specialist music teacher who liaises with Form and subject teachers to enable cross-curricular opportunities whenever possible, allowing stronger connections across the boys’ learning journey..
