At St Pauls, we have a ‘seriously fun’ approach for teaching music to instil a lifelong love of music in children. We want music to come alive and the classroom to be buzzing with an enthusiasm for learning! We aim for bright, engaging, interactive and often, hilarious, music lessons, where children achieve far more than they might expect!

The impact of this is to ensure that children at St Paul’s are equipped with musical skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3. As important as that is, there is something greater. That is that they leave St Paul’s with an excitement and love for music that is contagious, they are proud of their musical accomplishments, they thrive in their creativity, and they are fired up as the confident, young musicians that they have been encouraged to be.
