At Westdene we are passionate about music education & believe every child should have the opportunity to experience as many different styles & genres of music as possible during their time with us.

Music is taught by our wonderful specialist music teacher, Mrs Bright, who has a well-resourced dedicated music room.

All children from Reception to Year 6 receive a weekly music lesson. Lessons are always very “hands on” & children are completely comfortable handling & playing all our instruments. Children are encouraged to explore sounds & ways of playing as well as being introduced to formal note reading in Reception, through to learning composition skills using various music apps on our ipads in Years 2-6.

As a school, we regularly sing together & were proud to be the first school in Brighton & Hove to achieve both Silver and Gold SingUp awards in recognition of our commitment to singing.

We offer an extensive range of instrumental lessons, choirs & ensembles the children may join from year 2 upwards, providing many performance opportunities.
