Why do we teach Music at FPS?

To build confidence and a sense of achievement in a ‘non-academic’ subject, using musical sound as the dominant language of learning.

To explore creativity and expression using different instruments (including voice), techniques and technology to create musical compositions.

To be given the opportunity to learn how to read musical notation, play an instrument and communicate to others through performance.

To be able to critically engage with different genres of music through recognition of common elements.


There are many opportunities to learn to play an instrument at FPS. We currently have two whole-class instrumental projects (Y2 samba drumming and Y5 ukulele) and Y3 learn to play the recorder.  There are also private individual and group lessons available for the ukulele, violin, piano, flute and fife.

If you want to find out more information about learning an instrument in school or in your local area, please contact the school office or visit the Trafford Music Service website:   



Trafford Music Service also offer a range of ensembles and choirs at their centre in Sale. You can find out more via

In Year 6, the children used their learning about the origins and structure of rap to create and edit their own, adding a backing track using Chrome Music Lab (check out the website to try out making your own compositions!)


Here's a snippet of the very topical rap created by Jake in 6F last year
