Music

At Blundell's Prep we aim to instil a love of music in all pupils. The children have one hour of class music each week and are invited to join a range of instrumental and singing activities including our popular choirs.

Music at Blundell's Prep is an integral part of school life. A specialist teacher teaches this subject from Nursery to Year 6 within the curriculum. Eleven peripatetic teachers visit to teach a wide variety of instruments. These include piano, violin, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, guitar, drums and singing. All the children sing every week and are encouraged to join our thriving choirs.

Aims of the music department

  • For all children to enjoy their music-making, and that all should be encouraged to participate vocally and instrumentally.
