Music at Luston and Shobdon
Music Lead: Mary Freeman
We believe that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity.
Children are encouraged to understand music as a means of communication. They will be given the chance to work independently and collaboratively, composing, performing and appraising music. Through assemblies and performances, our music curriculum provides a source of cohesion within our school and the wider community
