At St. Sebastian's, we believe that music plays an important part in every child’s creative education. We know that children can develop self-confidence, self-esteem and a sense of well-being through listening to and creating music. We also know that research says that this can have a positive impact on learning in other subjects.
We teach children to listen, appreciate and talk about a range of genres from different musical traditions using the appropriate vocabulary. We ensure all children have the opportunity to sing, play instruments and to compose and make their own music.
Music Statement of Intent
'How is it that music can, without words, evoke our laughter, our fears and our highest aspirations?'
