Music

We particularly value the important role of music in the cultural life at Welwyn St Mary’s.  We set ourselves high standards of performance and are proud of the strong musical tradition that flourishes in the school both in class and extra-curricular activities.  We aim to develop the children’s musical understanding through both listening and learning about the elements of music by performing and composing.

Every child has equal access to music-making and there are many opportunities to foster a love and enjoyment of music for example, working with or listening to professional musicians, attending concerts for children and performing with others.

Children enjoy singing at Welwyn St Mary’s and the school choirs perform regularly in and outside school.  Tuition is offered on piano, violin, flute, clarinet, saxophone, brass and recorder and our instrumentalists play together in the school orchestra.
