Music, Lucton School

Music

Why do we study music at Lucton?

music at luctonThat’s an easy question to answer. There are numerous reasons to study music: there’s the emotional engagement, the intellectual stimulation, the act of self-expression, the knowledge gained of other cultures, times and places, and the escape from reality that music provides… The list goes on.

Music is a story which compels and captivates students of all ages and abilities. Music is a unique subject which combines intellectual training, rigorous investigation and practical exercises. In Music we foster a sense of academic inquiry, aural perception and analysis, and confidence in performance. 

In the lower years at Lucton (Prep and Middle School) we focus upon three complementary strands of study: aural skills, history and simple analysis, and performance. At Lucton all pupils are encouraged to sing and to take part in the many and varied extra-curricular performance opportunities that are on offer at the school.  All Year 5 and 6 pupils have free violin or cello lessons.

In the upper years pupils follow the OCR GCSE, AS and A2 syllabus.

The music department stages regular extra-curricular activities including Pupils’ Concerts, Musical Assemblies and Competitions; activities outside the school have recently included the opportunity for our Prep and Senior Choirs to sing Choral Evensong in Shrewsbury Abbey.
