Priding itself on high standards of musicianship

Monkton Prep School music pupilMusic forms an important part of the curriculum at Monkton Prep, not just in the classroom, but on stage, in Assembly and Chapel, in individual music lessons of which there are over 200 each week, in performance and in instrumental and theory exams. The School and the Music Department pride themselves on high standards of musicianship with some children even being ready for Grade 8 as they finish Year 8.

It is the aim of our Director of Music to:

    * Encourage all children to participate in musical activity irrespective of ability.
    * Generate an interest in and knowledge of a unique art form.
    * Convey a sense of enjoyment through a wide variety of activities.
    * Develop the innate musical ability of every child.
    * Develop the critical faculty of every child through the presentation of as wide
       a range of style and genre as possible.
    * To ensure familiarity with some notation.
    * To encourage instrumental lessons.
    * To develop skills of Listening, Performing and Composition at all levels.
