Music at Garfield

“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.”

Pablo Casals

“I was inspired to sing, thanks to the teachers and all of my friends”

Garfield pupil – Ofsted report 2019

Music plays a central role here at Garfield Primary and it is very much at the heart of our community.

Every class receives weekly music lessons given by a specialist music teacher.

Both Key stage 1 and Key stage 2 receive year group singing assemblies.

Children and staff are encouraged to perform and share musical experiences throughout the school year.

We believe that music is a vital part of our school curriculum and we continue developing and updating our music provision on an ongoing basis.

Children are taught to listen and appraise, sing, compose and to become confident performers.

Garfield has two school choirs who meet every week to prepare for various performances, in school and in the wider community.

Our past performances have included being part of the London Borough of Enfield massed choir concert at The Royal Festival Hall in March 2020 and at The O2 Arena in London as part of the Young Voices Choir in 2016 and 2018.
