Music

Music is important for all children and plays a big part in the life of our schools. Every pupil from Reception right up to Year 6 get a weekly Music lesson with a dedicated specialist Music Teacher.

Each Music Dept. in the Pegasus Academy Trust has it’s own individual style and each school offers a variety of Musical opportunities for it’s Pupils.

Please see below a virtual tour of Ecclesbourne Primary School’s “Jam-Bus,” one of the jewels in our Musical crown.

Music helps to develop a child’s short and long term memory, the ability to perform from visual signs and symbols, and the ability to listen with concentration. Playing an instrument extends these skills and develops co-ordination and control.

Children are given opportunities to perform at schools within the Trust, giving them greater confidence to express themselves and have opportunities to sing, play instruments, compose and listen to music. There are regular weekly music lessons given by specialist music teachers and many informal opportunities for music making.

Music is used in assembly and in other lessons including Art, Drama, English, History, P.E., R.E. and Science.

Children sing and listen to music in assembly. Our schools have a good range of percussion instruments which the pupils learn to play in composition and performance. They are encouraged to listen attentively and use appropriate language to talk about music.

Music making is an important part of the social and community life of our schools. Pupils may be considered for learning one of the instruments taught at each school. Full details are available separately.

Each of our schools has a choir to allow children to sing together and to maintain a part in a harmony. Pupils who sing in the choir or play an instrument are given opportunities to perform at venues such as Young Voices at the O2.
