As a team within a vibrant school community, we seek to support all aspects of school life through a range of teaching, performing and spiritual activities. The aim is to develop knowledge and understanding, as well as provide memorable musical experiences for our students regardless of age and ability. Extra-curricular music and instrumental/singing teaching are highly valued at St Martin’s. They are viewed as a significant aspect of applied learning, supporting the music curriculum, the musical life of the school and the musical life of the wider community.
The Music Department aims to:
provide lessons that inspire, enthuse, motivate and guide students through the study, practice and performance of music within a variety of social settings.
foster the love of music by encouraging students to participate in, and attend extra-curricular musical groups, choirs, ensembles, orchestras and performances both at school and beyond.
encourage students to explore and develop their own creativity through their own self-led learning both as independent learners and as collaborators.
