At Hamstead Hall Academy, we believe that Music helps pupils to become successful learners through the development of independence and creativity. Throughout their time here students will be given the opportunity to grow in confidence as they perform, compose, listen to and evaluate their own and others’ work.
Music at Hamstead Hall Academy instils creative thought and provides students with a varied and inclusive approach to becoming the musicians they want to be.
During their time at Hamstead Hall Academy, pupils are given the opportunity to showcase their musical talents and perform at various annual concerts such as Black history month, Christmas and Vaisakhi. Pupils also have the exciting opportunity to be a part of the whole school musicals we put on together with the Drama department. Past musicals include Grease, Little shop of horrors, We will rock you, Bugsy Malone and Oliver.
All students are able to enjoy their learning, making progress whilst developing their functional skills through the clear links made to literacy, numeracy and ICT in each project. A fully equipped iMac suite enables pupils to develop their music technology skills as well as their general musicianship.
