Music

The Music Department is commited to providing a broad music education in a supportive environment to all students at Winchmore School.

Music is taught in an engaging way, taking into account varying learning styles.  Each project involves plenty of opportunity for  performing, composing, listening and appraisal in line with the National Curriculum. Furthermore, the schemes of work chosen try to reflect the cultural background of the students. For example, African drumming, Indian music and Reggae are covered, as well as the more traditional topics from the Western classical/popular music tradition.

The Department has a growing list of extra-curricular activities including a choir, school band guitar group. In addition, many instruments are taught at the school by our peripatetic staff.a

 

Music Lesson Times:

If your son / daughter is learning to play a musical instrument at Winchmore, they will need to check for the times of these lesson on the notice board outside music, and write them down on one of our Musical instrument lessons yellow cards. These can be obtained from the music department or their instrumental teacher.

Should the lesson time be a problem due to exam / assessment clashes please let your instrumental teacher know in advance, and they will try to move the lesson time for you.

Any problems, please come and speak to Miss Freeman or Miss Brent in the music department.
