Student Perspective of Music delivered at The King John School.

“You get to enjoy yourself and express your feelings in loads of different ways”

“Inspires children to take on new things and try things out of their comfort zone”

“The Vision I have for Music at King John, is one where the students are free to express themselves using music and build confidence as young people.”

They are welcome to participate in clubs run within the department, allowing them to develop their musical and social skills as well as growing as young adults.  Music is integral to our lives and the music department offers our students a place of safety and security to learn and develop their skills without judgement or discrimination.

Students can draw the musicality and expertise of the staff within the department, making use of the facilities they have at their disposal and learn how to work as a team.

Students have the opportunity to explore music in a number of ways and are offered experiences to take part in shows, musical productions, trips, and a multitude of after school and lunch time clubs to develop as musicians and build new friendships.

We also offer the opportunity for our students to learn an instrument to support their musical interests.  We provide lessons in guitar, drums, singing, piano, flute, violin and music theory.  All of our peripatetic teachers are provided by Essex Music Services.
