Music @ Denbigh CPS 

Subject Lead: Mrs Clarke

The music curriculum at Denbigh aims to provide children with a range of musical experiences and access to music tuition from professional musicians. Focus changes on a half termly basis for every year group through Foundation Stage to Upper Key Stage 2. The aim is to show progression and a development of musical skills throughout the key stages.

We aim to expose children to a range of genres, styles and instruments that can be used in performance or as a means of expression.

Music is an important part of life at Denbigh and, paired with our performing arts school which takes place on a Saturday, we aim to offer children a means to learn and perform to an audience and their peers. Children enhance their learning through use of technology, singing assemblies and extra- curricular clubs and tuition.

At Denbigh, we value the Arts and believe that all children should have access to a broad range of musical experiences.

Another fantastic session with Holly on the steel pans for the Whales! The children have been working hard on recognising notation and learning the rhythm and melody to a classic steel pan tune. Can’t wait to hear it all come together 🎵 #dcpswhale #dcpsmusic #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants welcomed Holly back into their classroom this week for another ukulele lesson. We are really getting to grips with the chords. Today we have the extra challenge of starting to read music. We discussed what a stave was, started to learn the names of different notes and had a go at read written notation to work out the notes in a piece of music. #dcpselephant #dcpsmusic #dcpscore ...

Y5 Dolphins had another fantastic steel pan drum lesson with Holly last week. They focused on rhythm and melody when learning traditional Caribbean calypso music, and worked well in their groups to help each other remember the right notes - excellent networking skills and determination from everyone! Here’s a sneak peek of them playing ’Sunshine Soca’ #dcpscore #dcpsdolphin #dcpsmusic ... See MoreSee Less
