In Year 8 music students learn practical music making and performance skills on the keyboard, guitar, drum kit and ukulele. Students use their listening skills to evaluate their own and each other’s work and performances. Students learn how to compose, arrange and produce their own music using Logic and they also learn about the music industry through different topics.
Each year students have the opportunity to perform in school and public events such as the Arts Shows, the Local Offer, events hosted by the Leicester-Shire Music Service, Winter Wonderland Show, and festivals hosted by other schools and colleges. Students have also enjoyed visiting local music providers, studios and going to see musicians such as Bugsy Malone, Akala, as well as live local bands, DJs and grime artists.
