"Music can change the world."

Ludwig Van Beethoven

Music at Charlton House

Subject Leader: Mrs Salmon

Albert Einstein eloquently described, “if I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” 

At Charlton House, our music curriculum intends to inspire creativity and self-expression. We aim to foster a life-long love of music by exposing our pupils to diverse musical experiences and igniting a passion for music. By listening and responding to different musical styles, finding their voices as singers and performers and as composers, all will enable them to become confident, reflective musicians.

Throughout their time at Charlton House, children are given opportunities to forge their own musical journey. Music is taught by a specialist teacher who works with the children on this journey, helping them to develop an understanding of culture, history and ethnicity, and a love of music, either as listener, creator or performer. 

Individual lessons in a variety of instruments are offered to pupils who wish to pursue their interests in such.
