Music

Music is at the heart of Hackney New Primary School.

Why music?

We’ve chosen to make music a core part of our curriculum because:

  • musical performance rewards individual effort and teamwork
  • learning to play an instrument teaches focus, concentration and perseverance
  • performing, composing and appreciating music is beautiful and joyful.

Along with English and mathematics, music is a core subject at HNPS:

  • The school day begins with a music lesson for every class.
  • Children at the start of Phase 2 (age 6) have the opportunity to begin learning an instrument through small-group tuition.
  • As the school grows, children will have the opportunity to play with others in groups and bands, regularly performing to different audiences.
