      General Info

      Music is part of the national curriculum This is an extract taken from the national curriculum.

      "The importance of music Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. It brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. As an integral part of culture, past and present, it helps pupils understand themselves and relate to others, forging important links between the home, school and the wider world. The teaching of music develops pupils' ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music and to make judgements about musical quality. It encourages active involvement in different forms of amateur music making, both individual and communal, developing a sense of group identity and togetherness. It also increases self-discipline and creativity, aesthetic sensitivity and fulfilment."

      Making music is a great hobby that stays with you all your life. It's not always easy, that's maybe why it's so addictive. Our objective at A&C Hamilton School of Music (Preston) is to make music fun and to give our Music students at least a start on their way to enjoying making their own music.
