Music at Langton Green Primary School

Here at Langton Green Primary School, we pride ourselves in offering an outstanding musical curriculum to all, led by two experienced specialist music teachers. Children enjoy a wide range of musical experiences.

Children can participate in orchestra, choir and steel pans. Children can also opt to have private  lessons in guitar, piano, violin and a selection of wind instruments - more information on this can be found here.

Last year, pupils enjoyed a fantastic and fun-packed music week, when all children experienced playing a variety of musical instruments. Additionally, specialist teachers organized a musical concert showcasing the extraordinary talents of our children. Parents and other students enjoyed a spectacular show.

 

Our curriculum also provides high quality whole class music lessons.

We pride ourselves on the quality and diversity of music tuition at our school, and are continually looking for ways to extend it. We would like to see as many children as possible learning to play a musical instrument and performing in front of others at school.

Our primary aim is for every child to love music and delight in the diverse range of music that exists.

Music provision is a real strength of the school. The following opportunities are available for children; this list is not exhaustive, please speak to the school if you would like to know more.

  • Music lessons and singing assemblies with our specialist music teachers, Mrs Yvonne Smith and Mrs Elisa Harrod. These teachers offer musical exposure to KS1 and KS2 children of all abilities.
