Music Tuition at Norfolk House

Posted on: September 30th 2012

At Norfolk House School we have several pupils every year who achieve Grade 5 in musical exams (equivalent to GCSEs) and this achievement places them in a strong position for a music scholarship going to secondary school. For two consecutive years we had students who were awarded music scholarships: Ethan King (2011) and Finlay Martin (2012).  Pupils who hold any music qualifications have an advantage when they apply for secondary schools.

The majority of our pupils continue to study music when they go to secondary school and become successful members of orchestras and choirs.

Music is a way of knowing. Music intelligence is equal in importance to logical- mathematical, linguistic, interpersonal and bodily-kinaesthetic intelligence, and skills learned through the discipline of music transfer to study, communication and cognitive skills useful in every part of the curriculum.

It is well-known that creating and performing music promotes self-expression, self-gratification and a great sense of achievement; therefore instrumental tuition is an integral part of pupils’ educational experience.

At Norfolk House School we have a great team of music tutors teaching singing, strings (violin, viola and cello), piano and guitar. Our music tutors use a range of teaching approaches to make lessons enjoyable, challenging and productive for pupils. They are able to define expectations of achievement and standards and communicate short and long term targets with pupils.

We would like to hold a parent event after half term to talk through the benefits of music and to encourage parents to sign their children up. This will be open to our KS1 parents on this occasion.
