|Music at Northbourne Park
Music plays an important part in our life here at Northbourne. We try to instil a love of music in all children through music lessons, instrument tuition, concerts and musical productions.
Most children learn an instrument and it is quite common for certain children to reach Grade 7 in at least one instrument before they leave us. For the past 2 years our pupils have won 3 music scholarships each year to leading independent schools in Kent.
Each term we have informal concerts where children and adults can perform, no matter what their level.
All children enjoy class music lessons, and we have a large visiting team of instrumental staff who teach all orchestral instruments as well as piano.
Our choir works to a very high standard and regularly performs at community events.
Children play a range of music from classical to modern and jazz. Our school band is made up of students, parents and friends and the concerts are very popular.
We also run a Saturday music club for our own dedicated musicians as well as children from the area, and each year we hold a week’s summer music school attracting back many of our former pupils and their friends too.
