“Music ‘brings us together, helping us reflect upon who we are, where we have come from, and what lies ahead.’ The arts and music transcend ‘languages, cultures, and borders’ … and helps ‘exchange ideas and styles and share in the artistic vibrancy born from diverse experiences and traditions.”
– Former USA President, Barack Obama
Music can be a powerful form of communication, which supports with developing a child’s ability to listen carefully and express thoughts and emotions. It is a universal language that gives the opportunity for children to be creative and explorative, increasing their self-confidence and sense of achievement. Musical skills are transferable across the curriculum, and it is a subject which also promotes cognitive and physical development in all children. We believe that Music at Hackbridge should engage and inspire the pupils for a love and appreciation of music in their lives.
