Music Lessons at School

Learning to play a musical instrument and developing musical skills is one of the most exciting things a young person can do. Not only is it fun and rewarding, but it has proven to help children develop:

• Personal and social skills: self-confidence, teamwork

• Perception, awareness, creativity and imagination

• Language, numeracy and literacy skills

General attainment and intellectual development

Music lessons at our school are delivered by Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust (NMPAT). As one of the leading Music Education Hubs in the country, with exceptional enrichment and progression opportunities, NMPAT is our chosen delivery partner for music.
