it is our intent to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
At Albion, music focuses on listening, composing, evaluating, performing and appraising musical elements across a range of historical periods, genres, cultures, styles and traditions, including the works of the great classical composers and modern musicians.
Every child has the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. The
children learn how to play the recorder, the ukulele, African drums, steel pans,
keyboards as well as a variety of percussion instruments throughout their
time at Albion.
Our music curriculum is delivered by both classroom teachers and music specialists, in conjunction with Southwark Music Service and Hub. They learn basic musicianship by understanding and exploring how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
Pupils have opportunities to see live performances at venues throughout London.
