Music Curriculum


Aims: The St John’s Music curriculum provides students with a varied musical experience that is accessible for all, but also challenging for those with prior musical knowledge. We aim to provide a lifelong passion for, and interest in, music across a range of genres. Students will be able to develop their knowledge and skills in performing, composing and appraising music.
