Music is a ‘universal language’
A unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate all children. It is a vehicle for personal expression, and it can play an hugely important part in the personal development of children.
Music reflects the rich and diverse culture and society we live in, and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world they live in. Besides being a creative and enjoyable activity, music can also be a highly academic and demanding subject. It also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community. At Town Field we strive to provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music.
Music teaching staff from Doncaster Music Hub offer a carefully monitored service including support to schools and professional instrumental teaching.
The activities at the Doncaster Music Hub are designed to extend our school based work.
We provide instrumental lessons in primary and secondary schools in a variety of different ways to suit children and young people at different times in life and with different reasons for wanting to learn. The lessons are delivered by specialist teachers of each instrument or family of instruments.
Lessons are provided on:
- guitar (includes classical, electric & ukulele)
- full range of orchestral, band and percussion instruments
In the early stages, teaching is often done in small groups, but advanced pupils, those playing minority instruments and those sitting examinations, may be given more individual attention.
Instrumental teaching is generally carried out during school hours and every effort is made to arrange times so as not to interfere with the schools internal timetables.
