“Whoever has skill in Music is of good temperament and fitted for all things”
“Music develops analytical thinking because it requires students to be create. They don’t just regurgitate memorized facts, They have to apply those facts.”
Dr. Kevin Strother
“Music education can help spark a child’s imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion. When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless. Music education should not be a privilege for a lucky few, it should be a part of every child’s world of possibility.”
Music, as a universal language, is a subject that is accessible and inclusive to all. We have a strong belief in positive praise and creating a happy, collaborating classroom where students can develop and progress comfortably. Through practical group work the students are encouraged to use and develop many transferable life skills including; communication, listening, social and leadership skills. They are also encouraged to develop problem-solving techniques as well as developing manual/physical dexterity and co-ordination.
The combination of a diverse, quality-focused curriculum, and a rich extra-curricular culture at Deyes High School, arms students with a growth-based mindset. These students grow in confidence, creativity, reflectiveness and expressivity and benefit from social, emotional, and mental health benefits that comes from a genuine enjoyment and love for music.
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 their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. It should be inclusive and accessible for everyone to be actively involved in their learning. Our curriculum lends itself to broadening student’s knowledge and cultural capital as well as increasing engagement through practical schemes.
