Always Children First


Westvale Park Primary Academy are passionate about all children having the opportunities to participate in high quality music tuition. This is why we invest in a dedicated music teacher, who visits our school each Thursday to deliver engaging lessons. 


Younger children are encouraged to experience music through the use of visual aids, action songs, simple percussion instruments, games, nursery rhymes and more.


Research has shown that encouraging children to take part in music sessions from an early age helps to boost their cognitive ability. It can also give them a sense of fun, the ability to work in a team, and increase self-esteem. These skills, learnt at a young age, last a lifetime.


Children are encouraged to:

  • develop musical skills, such as rhythm and pulse
  • learn about pitch and dynamics
  • experiment with sound on a variety of percussion instruments
  • make new friends and work as a team
  • sing together
  • appreciate and critique music from a wide range of genres, eras and cultures
