At Lawn Primary School we strongly believe music provides children with a rich source of cultural, emotional and personal pleasure, stimulating creativity and discovery as well as developing an aesthetic awareness. Our children enjoy taking part in whole school music lessons, these often involve using a variety of computing programmes. We use the Charanga online music resources which gives the children an opportunity to experience music from a wide variety of cultures, genres and ages. This scheme also helps to support the children in building confidence in producing their own live performances. There is also the opportunity to undertake individual music tuition in a wide variety of instruments.
Among our music resources, the children are very fortunate to have access to our school Music Garden where they can experience taking part in composing and performing percussion instruments made largely from recycled materials.
We are very proud of our growing ensemble groups and Lawn Performing Arts Club (LPAC), with its 100 plus members. The children perform in concerts both within school and in the local community. It’s not just our children who have the music bug.
