We are very proud with the variety of music lessons we offer at DBCPS and the great results that the children are achieving. Music is not just about Grading and passing exams for extra credit but it is for personal enjoyment and it teaches children perseverance and patience .
There is various research about learning music/instruments linked to improved maths learning as playing a musical instrument relies on understanding concepts, such as fractions and ratios that are important for mathematical achievement. Also, based on a great number of studies, researchers claim that we all respond to music on a neurological level. Music affects our behaviour, psychology and reality perception.
I am so proud to see new faces performing and how the previous students have progressed in their learning. Performing in front of a crowd is hard and the confidence we have seen is great given that some of them only been having lessons for 12 weeks!
Well done to all the students for the lovely performance and thank you for the music!
If your child is interested and want to learn an instrument please refer to our school music webpage: https://dartfordbridgecps.com/?page_id=20194 for further information as we have three peripatetic teachers at school who offer a range of instruments: Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone, Violin, Drums, Guitar and Piano who you will have to contact directly to arrange lessons with.
