Making Music in Primary Schools - Wider Opportunities

"They learn so much more than the music ... It’s developing their ability to concentrate, to work together and to listen. And of course learning an instrument gives them confidence, develops self-esteem, inspires them, and helps them to develop as a whole person. All of those are transferable skills which are being developed incredibly well through music. Some are even creating compositions together – so it’s collaborative learning too. But beyond that, the teacher’s learning too." 
-- David Crunkhurn, Head, Westbury-on-Severn C of E Primary
