Music is a vibrant and diverse subject which, at KS3, is split into three key areas of study. First we teach all students the basic practical skills required to play the keyboard, guitar, bass and drum kit. We also teach about notation, performance and audience skills. The second sphere is composition, where once every fortnight all students are given opportunities to make up their own music. The final sphere is theory and listening, where music comes together and enhances the learning of the other two areas of study.
