The inspiration and power of the arts play a vital role in enabling our children and young people to enhance their creative talent and develop their artistic skills.


"Where words fail, music speaks"

Hans Christian Andersen

"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."


"I know that the most joy in my life has come to me from my violin"

Albert Einstein


Learning through music enables children and young people to:

  • be creative and express themselves in different ways
  • experience enjoyment and contribute to other people’s enjoyment through creative and expressive performance and presentation
  • develop important skills, both those specific to music and those which are transferable
  • develop an appreciation of aesthetic and cultural values, identities and ideas and, for some, prepare for advanced learning and future careers by building foundations for excellence in music
