Music is about communication, creativity and cooperation. By studying music in school, students have the opportunity to build on these skills, enrich their lives and experience the world from a new perspective.
At Monks Orchard, we believe that music is a universal language that unites and binds our school community. It is a right of every child in our school to experience music as part of their all-round development and learning. During music lessons, children encounter a wide variety of activities which includes whole-class instrumental learning, regular singing and the development of musical skills to enhance their understanding of musical language.
Beyond the classroom, there are options to continue learning an instrument through one of our extra-curricular clubs or in conjunction with Croydon Music and Arts. We also have two enthusiastic and vibrant choirs. There are frequent performance opportunities both within school and in our wider community.
Children are encouraged to pursue their musical talents at their own level, so that they can develop as confident and proficient musicians.
