The children at Burlington Junior School all learn music as part of the curriculum, either singing, playing djembe drums or xylophones. They learn about the terms: beat, pulse, rhythm and dynamics. At the end of the year all the children perform in a concert for their parents and play the songs they have been learning, including ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’, ‘Can’t stop this feeling’ by Justin Timberlake, ‘This is Me’ from the Greatest Showman and many other popular songs.
We also showcase the pupils who decide they want to study an instrument further and start taking their Graded Exams. We have drummers, violinists, cellists and flautists. You can see more from the Concerts in the films below.
