At Marsden Junior School, we aim for all of our children to gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community and for their wellbeing. We also aim to foster a love and enjoyment for music and performing and to develop the children’s mastery of skills. Children progress in terms of tackling more complex tasks and doing more simple tasks better, as well as developing understanding and knowledge of the history of music, staff and other musical notations.

Musical tuition

There is the opportunity for children to learn various musical instruments (e.g. brass, strings, woodwind, piano, percussion) depending on their age and aptitude, through Kirklees Music School and is arranged with them directly by calling 01484 426426.
