A flourishing musician at The Ridge can build concentration, develop working memory, improve listening skills and enjoy times of relaxation and reflection. Children will master skills such as performing and composing, creating original, imaginative, fluent and distinctive pieces of work thereby giving them positive experiences of self-expression. Through performance evaluation, our musicians can give explanations, using musical terminology effectively and appropriately. Pupils will build their awareness and appreciation of the provenance of different musical traditions and genres through a wide range of musical experiences, leading to a greater understanding of the historical, social and cultural origins of music. Technical expertise is achieved through a range of tuned and non-tuned instruments, including peripatetic opportunities through the local authority music service.
We currently offer private keyboard and guitar lessons; if you are interested in this for your child, please enquire at the office for further details and pricing.
