We believe music enriches the quality of life. At St John’s Mead we proudly promote singing as an essential part of musical education. All of the children are involved in a wide variety of singing opportunities, whether that is performing within school in assemblies or concerts, or in the community as part of local music festivals and events. Practical music making is an important part of our music curriculum, where children can develop their composition skills through listening, appraising and evaluating music from a range of eras and genres. Individual interests and skills are encouraged and there are opportunities for the older children to play recorder, violin, electronic keyboard, fife, brass or guitar.
