Intent – Music
Increasingly, research is showing that high-quality music lessons have a significant, positive impact on a child’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. According to the Music Education Council, “The benefits are greatest when musical activities start early and continue over a long period of time.”
Singing and active music-making are the core of music experience and understanding, and have been shown to benefit concept formation, abstract thought, memory, linguistic development, spatial awareness and coordination, as well as creativity and confidence. At Whitley, we deliver weekly, high-quality music lessons and participate in regular events outside of school to celebrate our passion for the subject.
We aim to nurture the enjoyment of performing and develop confident vocalists. We use music as a medium of celebration and feel it is a powerful communicative tool. We love singing and sing passionately, from our hearts.
