Music

At Brill School, we believe that Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and increase their musical skills, and so increase self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to a wide range of musical styles and works by a variety of composers.

Every child at Brill is an individual and our musical provision is one of the many curriculum areas where we encourage all to thrive, to be themselves, to enjoy participating and growing, and to be the best they can be whilst demonstrating and developing their own unique flare!

A Musical Visit - The New Mozart Orchestra

nphipps on: MUSIC BLOG

  

A huge thank you to the members of the New Mozart Orchestra who came and visited us in school today. We were all delighted by the story of Hansel and Gretel and the musical accompaniment. Being introduced to all the different instruments in the orchestra was inspirational and the children enjoyed hearing a little more about each family of instruments. 

For the majority of our children at Brill, this was the first time they had seen an orchestra playing live, which was really exciting and enlightening. "I really liked being able to see all the instruments playing together!" (Arthur)

Opportunities to Perform Musically

nphipps on: MUSIC BLOG

Each week, we have slots at the beginning and end of Collective Worship for our children to perform either musically or through the medium of interpretive dance. Callum was our first performance this week and the whole school was delighted with his electric guitar playing. Thank you, Callum, and well done!

Music Rocks!

nphipps on: MUSIC BLOG

 

We have an exciting opportunity to share for all children in Years 3-6. XYZ Music have been into school today and have inspired our children during an assembly where they played electric guitar, drums and bass guitar. The children loved the assembly and much head bobbing was spotted!

XYZ Music are going to be offering electric guitar lessons and drum lessons in school during this academic year. If your child is interested in taking up this opportunity, please contact the office on office@brillschool.org.uk

In addition to the lessons provided by XYZ Music, we also facilitate lessons provided by Aylesbury Music Service on different musical instruments. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, do please contact the office and the appropriate paperwork/links will be sent to you either in letter or via email.

Our pupils know that to develop and grow in any area of learning, they need to be prepared to challenge themselves to do things that are sometimes outside of their ‘comfort zone’. Pupils at Brill School enjoy singing together, composing and exploring sound in small groups, developing musical technique and musicianship skills through individual instrumental lessons and through whole class music lessons. These opportunities lead towards various ways of sharing their unique musical creations or performances of music from a range of musical eras in class lessons or in our assembly performance slots.

As we inspire one another by being prepared to ‘have a go’ and by striving for excellence, we are developing a culture in our school where many pupils are rehearsing during break times to prepare for performances they have voluntarily signed up for. Some of our Year 6s are currently creating their own original songs with the intent of sharing this during an assembly.

Many pupils at Brill School have discovered that their enjoyment of music has built their inner confidence and has enabled them to believe in themselves in a different way. This confidence has then been transferred into other areas of school life and other curriculum areas, which has ensured successes in many ways, both within the context of music but also in other ways.

Sharing musical experiences with others from different schools is also a high priority, and one of our favourite and most challenging bi-annual events is the Echoes concert that take place at The Royal Albert Hall. Whilst being musically challenging, this opportunity enables our children to be part of a much larger event as they learn to love different aspects of their musical experiences.
