Welcome to the music department...
Subject Leader - Music
At Newman College we want every pupil to be given the opportunity to access music, both inside and outside of the classroom. Pupils are given the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to express themselves through music, develop musically through active participation and give themselves the motivation, space and skills in which to be creative.
Music can enrich pupils’ social interactions through ensemble work and peer support, strengthen resilience through rehearsal, boost confidence through performance and help our young people try to find their own unique voice. We strive to develop a love of the subject by learning ‘through' musical activity rather than simply learning ‘about' music.
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” Victor Hugo
