Confucius said “Music produces a kind of pleasure which humans cannot do without”. Longfellow said “Music is the universal language of mankind”. At Stormont School we seek to give children the tools to appreciate music and to inspire and enable them make their own.

In lessons we sing, play percussion and, from Form 2, learn recorder and orchestral instruments. We listen to a wide range of music, looking at elements such as rhythm and timbre. In response to listening, we move, clap, improvise and sometimes compose.

Also from Form 2, peripatetic lessons are available. Throughout the school year, music is celebrated with concerts, performances and our annual Carol Service.
