At IVJS we strive to provide all pupils with the opportunity to feel like a real musician! Through our exciting curriculum, and the support of a talented, specialist music teacher our pupils become critics, composers and performers of music from their classroom! Throughout their time at IVJS, pupils will have listened to and appraised many different music genres, learnt to play a variety of instruments and composed and performed their own pieces of music. This not only provides pupils with the joy of music but develops their critical thinking skills as they are encouraged to justify their opinions of music and their choices when composing. At IVJS we strive to offer our children experiences they may not access elsewhere and this includes introducing them to music they may not normally choose to listen to!
We also give parents the opportunity to pay for private provision for their children from outside agencies: these pupils are able to choose from weekly drumming, piano, guitar and violin lessons.
