At St Ignatius the children have the opportunity to learn the violin or a woodwind instrument.
Music is an art that combines many concepts and techniques and uses them to inspire, to imagine, to invent and to express feeling. These are the features of listening and responding, performing and composing on which the curriculum is based.
Music is an integral part of the curriculum, not just because it enhances other areas of learning but because it deepens the children’s sense of humanity, teaching them to recognise beauty and to appreciate more fully the world in which they live.
The teaching of Music at St. Ignatius aims to;
- Foster enjoyment in Music making
- Seeks to develop children’s skills, understanding, knowledge and attitudes
- Allows for Musical growth and the development of creativity in our children
