At Myatt Garden, we believe music has the ability to act as a powerful form of expression, increasing a child’s confidence, encouraging creativity and providing another space to promote a sense of self-worth.
Each class participates in weekly music sessions and regular singing assemblies with our music specialist, where various styles of music are explored through instrument playing, singing and physical movement. Topics range from Latin American carnivals, African tribal music and Ancient Egyptian drum rhythms, to soundscapes, song composition and Tudor music.
Music has become an integral part of our Christmas and summer productions in which Myatt Garden children are able to apply the musical knowledge they have acquired into performing in front of an audience with confidence and fluency.
Our Key Stage 2 choir develop techniques such as harmonising, singing in rounds and general musical dynamics. Their tremendous work prepares them to perform at both local and national events such as the Year 6 Production, International Evening, Turning of the Year and Lewisham Live.
