WELCOME TO NEWFIELD MUSIC
There are many musical and talented students across both Lower and Upper School here at Newfield. We have a busy music department with lots of extra-curricular activities taking place throughout the year to support learning and personal development. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, some of these plans have had to be put on hold or changed. We have not let this hold us back though. Throughout the autumn term, pupils and students across Lower and Upper School worked very hard to improve their musical skills, building confidence again to perform in our concert A Covid Christmas! in December. It was nice to see and hear our new primary pupils taking part too, a great start to being a pupil at Newfield, well done.
This half term, pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 will be taking part in BBC’s JolanDa’s Band Jam and working towards their Discover or Explore Arts Award in Music.
Year 5 & 6 pupils are working towards the Explore Arts Award in Music, their Entry Level 3 Music qualification. Some Year 6 pupils are moving towards Level 1 Bronze in preparation for starting Year 7 next year.
Year 7 and 8 will be working on developing their instrumental skills. They are currently working towards their Level 1 Bronze Arts Award in Music.
Year 9 students are focusing on composition skills using music technology in preparation for KS4 music next year. Those who have not already passed their level 1 Arts Award in Music will be completing this in the summer term.
Year 10 music students are studying the GCSE in Music course. They are currently working on solo performance skills, composition and analysis of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto.
Our Year 11 student is working towards the completion of their Arts Award in Music.
Students across upper and lower school can take instrumental lessons in addition to learning keyboard, drums/percussion and singing in class. Some of our older children are also studying a second instrument. Currently we have additional piano, guitar, drums and singing lessons available. Should you require advice on purchasing or loaning an instrument please make contact with school.
Events for summer term will be reviewed nearer the time. We look forward to seeing you soon.
