Music

Music is taught by our specialist teacher Miss Berry who teaches the subject from Reception to Year 6.  Scientists say that children who are exposed to music, or those who play an instrument, do better in school than those who don't. Recent research suggests exposure to music may benefit a child's reading age, IQ and the development of certain parts of the brain. Music teaches good disciplines, can relieve stress, gives a sense of achievement, but most of all – Music is fun!

Children learn Music as part of their carousel (alongside Computing, French and PE).

Our curriculum ensures every child from reception through to Year 6 learns to play all classroom instruments in an ensemble setting; this includes but is not limited to recorders, keyboards, ukuleles, chime bars, rhythm sticks, hand drums and Boom-whackers.

The Music department is responsible for all singing in assemblies, for teaching music which is appropriate for different festivals, and for the Year 3 and Year 6 Productions.

Sudbury has its own School Choir (The Sudbury Songbirds), and a School Band. These ensembles represent the school in concerts and competitions and make visits to the Sudbury Neighbourhood Centre and Bishops Court (warden-controlled accommodation).
 

Children have the opportunity to have instrumental tuition through Brent Music Service. Currently BMS are providing Violin, Piano, Brass, Woodwind, Guitar and Drum lessons here at Sudbury. If you would like more information about instrumental tuition, please contact Mr Rudd at school or visit the BMS website.

Children taking instrumental lessons are encouraged to take ABRSM Graded examinations, join BMS ensembles and choirs, and to perform at every opportunity both in and out of school.

The National Curriculum bases its Music Curriculum around skills involving Listening, Performing and Composing, and at Sudbury, we relate these activities,whenever possible, to the school’s spiral curriculum.
