Some form of musical communication is a part of every known culture on earth – it is part of what makes us human. Emotions, intentions and meanings can be expressed through music. This is why we believe that music teaching is central to our life at Raynham.
Music as a school subject is creative, social, physical and academic. It can provide children with a skill for life, whether in employment directly in the music industry or, more likely, in their leisure time. It promotes teamwork, self-confidence and a sense of achievement. In a world where instant gratification is often the norm, some musical activities, such as learning to play a musical instrument, help children to understand the value of patience and practice over a long period of time.
