Music

At Emmanuel School we strive to create a musical community that is rich with cultural, social, and artistic diversity. We aim to inspire each child to become a creative and innovative musician and seek to find and nurture musical talents.

We like to offer all children a wide range of musical opportunities. Our choir and orchestra rehearse once a week after school and perform throughout the year at many school events.

We are very excited to now have our very own Brass Band, with every child in Year 5 and Year 6 class learning a brass instrument.

All children in KS1 and KS2 have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument with our visiting Camden Music Service tutors. The instruments on offer are piano, guitar, ukulele, violin, recorder, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone and voice. We encourage children learning these instruments to work towards taking music exams.

Camden Music Service

Supergroups- there is still space in October half-term for Supergroups.  To be in a Supergroup, you will need to be in Years 3-6; have learnt your instrument for at least two terms, be able to play and read at least 5 notes and enjoy focussing for a whole weekend of music making.
