Music at Newton

Welcome to the newly configured Music Department!

In our team of 16 Visiting Music Teachers, we have a highly qualified set of musicians who are active performers and committed to skilled teaching.

I am delighted that our pupils have these exceptional opportunities and they are able to work with our teachers on a weekly basis.

Individual music lessons are a test of commitment and dedication to music and the instrument chosen by the pupil. That said, the rewards of hard work and learning are great. It is well known that music offers myriad benefits to pupils’ learning.

If your child would like to learn any instrument offered by our current team please complete this form.

In addition to weekly class music lessons taught by specialist teachers, we offer our pupils an inspiring, creative and varied programme of extra-curricular activities where all abilities are welcome. Through their participation in choirs and ensembles, pupils are taught how to demonstrate commitment and team-work: they are expected to both work hard and enjoy their rehearsals so that their performance shines as a product of practice, creativi­ty and flare.
