Music plays an important part in life at Hurlingham School and all pupils have the opportunity to learn and appreciate a variety of music and to play small instruments both tuned and untuned. We have group and individual music rooms.
The school aims to encourage the children’s musical enjoyment, awareness and appreciation in all its forms through exploring, participating and sharing experiences.
Singing is an integral part of Hurlingham life for all children, with many performance opportunities throughout the school year. These include Christmas concerts, form revues, class assemblies, weekly singing practice, musicals and even a ‘Battle of the Bands’.
Individual lessons in piano, recorder, flute, clarinet, violin, drums, ukulele, guitar, saxophone, trumpet and voice are available from specialist teachers. Our dedicated specialist team are all industry professionals, demonstrating a clear passion for teaching and developing the musicianship at Hurlingham School.
There are many concerts throughout the year designed to provide a platform for budding musicians to experience showcasing their skills in front of an audience of adults and children during the formal Spring Music Concert or the more informal Summer concert season. At Hurlingham musicianship is about the individual journey and all children are celebrated.
There is also the provision of extra-curricular clubs and ensemble groups through MADD4! Hurlingham’s after school Arts programme. MADD4!’participants can explore music through ukulele and recorder groups and older children have the opportunity to join ‘Band’ which enables ensemble development through the use of a wider range of instruments.
