Introduction to Music

Introduction to Music

At Kentmere Academy we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. We ensure that our music lessons are interactive to ensure the children are engaged and inspired. Alongside the class teaching each year group (KS1 and KS2) receives specialist musical instrument tuition in a range of instruments, provided by the Rochdale Music Service. There are also many extra-curricular music activities run through our clubs and enrichment programs.
