The Chinese philosopher Confucius said long ago that –

“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without”

At Claremont Primary School we believe that children from all backgrounds should have the opportunity to listen to, and to make music with others. We want our music curriculum to inspire pupils to develop a love of music and so increase their self-confidence and creativity.

We give pupils the opportunities to: perform music with others, listen to works of the great composers and musicians, learn to sing and learn a musical instrument and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence.

Our children have the opportunity to play instruments from African drums to Steel pans, from Recorders to Trumpets and from Xylophones to Guitars. We have regular singing sessions in all Key Stages as well as a school choir. We are proud to be able to provide opportunities for our children to perform in a number of venues across Manchester.
