St Eugene de Mazenod

Catholic Primary School

'Go shine in the world.'


Children take part in weekly music lessons led by a specialist teacher. Key Stage One children learn musicianship skills through a series of progressive activities linking movement and singing to key musical processes such as pitch, rhythm and pulse, tempo and dynamics. Skills are developed in Key Stage Two through a topic-based curriculum, as children learn about Classical, popular and world music through performing, composing and listening. Children have the opportunity to participate in an orchestra and choir and a group of children take part in a performance at the Royal Albert Hall with pupils from schools across the Camden borough. Our Wider Opportunities programme offers year 4 children the opportunity to learn an instrument e.g. guitar in whole class music lessons run by skilled music tutors. Some children also take additional instrumental tuition on piano, guitar, recorder and violin. We have a school choir and a school band who perform in our termly music concerts and other events.  Children showcase their music to parents through our popular music concerts at Christmas, Easter and at the end of the school year.  If you go to "Our Curriculum" - school videos, you will find a video entitled Music at St Eugene's, where you can listen to a sample of our music teaching for you to enjoy.
