The music department follows a diverse curriculum catering for pupils' individual needs and interests.
All pupils have the opportunity to gain qualifications following Arts Awards Accreditation. In Key Stages 4 pupils are offered the opportunity to take a qualification with Pearson’s BTEC Music Practice. The BTEC is a bespoke qualification; it is malleable based on pupils’ talents and interests in music performance and composition. This qualification follows a clear structure and allows pupils to develop a specific individual interest within the subject and build on their knowledge.
Pupils have the opportunity to perform three annual showcases, alongside other public performance opportunities such as assemblies or charity shows, helping them to build confidence and develop their social skills.
They have the opportunity to access music technology and composition on GarageBand using iPads, and are offered sessions on keyboards. Each pupil is allocated their own keyboard with headphones to facilitate for sensory needs.
Pupils are educated on the theory of reading and writing music and are encouraged to access their full creative potential. Pupils at Muntham House School can also access the learning and teaching of a variety of other instruments such as Piano, Guitar, Drums and many more. Pupils can participate in the school’s band if they choose and are offered multiple opportunities such as, live shows and professional studio outings to record their work.
