At Upton, children learn Music through the medium of instrumental tuition, with each year group focusing on a different instrument - recorder and percussion / violin / ukulele / keyboard. Through the instrument, children learn to focus their listening skills, develop basic playing and performance skills, create simple compositions and improvisations as well as regular singing and movement based around the study. Children also learn about the breadth of musical history, from Bach to Iron Maiden, from Folk to Funk, from Rock to Rap!
Upton is widely respected for its development of musical excellence and we seek to continue this and build upon it.
