At Bush Hill Park Primary School, all Year 2-6 pupils have the opportunity to study music and develop their performing, composing and appraisal skills. Pupils will learn about music from a variety of periods and genres, including classical, folk, popular and world music. Please visit the link below for further details. 

Music lessons provide a chance for pupils to develop their creativity through individual and collaborative work, and to gain confidence through performing to each other.

Pupils can develop their musical skills further by joining an extra-curricular club such as the Music Makers Club (for Years 1 and 2 pupils), the Years 5 and 6 Choir and Musical Theatre Club.​
