Music

The music curriculum is led and managed by two specialist and experienced music teachers alongside the help, support and great enthusiasm of all our staff.

We provide children with exciting opportunities to participate in a number of performances in school as well as large scale concerts outside of school. Visits to concerts are booked and we try to ensure that all our pupils get as many opportunities as possible to attend live music concerts. Our pupils get the opportunities to attend opera performances at the Royal Opera House and orchestral concerts at the Barbican and the Royal Festival Hall.

Every child will experience one or more of the following during their time at Prince of Wales Primary:

  • Ghanaian Kpanalogo drumming
  • Steel pans
  • Ukulele
  • Recorders

In addition to this piano and keyboard are taught and lessons are available in school. Lesson on other instruments can be arranged if requested. We have a large number of enrichment activities eg Ghanaian Kpanalogo drumming, steel pans, ocarina, recorder and ukulele.

Regular and frequent concerts and performances are held at school by our pupils to which parents are invited.

We have a music therapist coming in once a week to work with pupils.

We participate in borough music activities such as partnership singing festivals.
