Denmark Road High School

Discover Realise Honour Shape


Music is a unique form of communication that can change the way students think, feel and act.  Music brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. 

Music at Denmark Road High School allows all students active involvement in different forms of music making.  In Years 7-9 students study a broad-based and practical curriculum.  They experience a wide range of musical styles, techniques and cultures through composing, performing and listening activities.  Students perform both individually and as a group, helping to develop a sense of group identity and togetherness.

The Music Department has two specialist teaching rooms, one is fitted with keyboards and a large rehearsal space, and the other is an iMac computer suite with music software available (Garage band, Sibelius and Musescore) on every computer.  All students from Year 7 have the opportunity to use the computers in classroom projects.  It is also a useful tool in composition work for GCSE and A Level courses.

The department aims to develop students' critical skills; their ability to listen, to appreciate a wide variety of music and to make judgements about musical quality as well as increasing self-confidence, creativity, creating a sense of achievement and self-worth and increasing their ability to work with others in a group context.
