Purpose of Study
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity which in turn triggers emotional responses and kickstarts creativity like no other, Music is a fundamental pillar of arts education.
The high-quality music education we provide will engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. We give all children the opportunity to participate in an engaging and inspiring music curriculum.
At Markyate school we believe that music is for everyone and is an important part of our everyday lives. It is an integral part of every child’s learning journey at school, playing a part in their overall creative and personal, social and emotional development.
What does Music look like in our school?
At Markyate Village School, we want to offer every child the opportunity to take part in music and develop an appreciation of music that can last a life time. To achieve this, we employ specialist music teachers to deliver fantastic lessons, we have a recorder club and we have peripatetic teachers to teach 1:1 music lesson in guitar, piano, saxophone and flute. We have a strong and enthusiastic school choir that performs in school concerts, at local events. In 2020, the choir performed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Hertfordshire Music Festival, and this year they performed at the O2, as part of the Young Voices event.
