How to BECOME a Musician

Music is taught across all classes who use both the Active Music Scheme of Work and the Charanga scheme.  Children in year two also have the opportunity to take part in whole class instrument tuition whilst at St Margaret's.  

For the academic year 2022/23 Brook Class are learning the Ukulele with Mr Andrew Howsley from Oldham Music Centre, a group of year three children are continuing to learn the Ukelele as well as children in years four and five learning how to play the guitar. 


The benefits of music lessons include:

- co-ordination and memory improvement

-  develops creativity

- develops self-discipline and motivation

- social skills are helped by working in groups, where team-work and interpersonal skills are paramount.

- learning to collaborate, listening to each other and compromising for the greater good

-  communicating clearly and taking responsibility

-  the experience of performing teaches children to become self-reliant and individually responsible

- improvement of child’s confidence levels.

- music transcends barriers of nationality, ethnicity, creed, gender, class and age.
