Music at CAW
At City Academy Whitehawk, children are exposed to a wide range of high-quality musical pieces: this gives our children the opportunity to immerse themselves in a variety of musical and hence cultural contexts. As well as playing a selection of exciting instruments (from the flutophone to the uklelele!), children are able to attain the fundamentals of music as lessons are rich with high quality vocabulary and terminology.
Experts in the field from the Sussex Music Service (SMS) deliver weekly lessons and liaise closely with class teachers to ensure the highest quality provision and progression of skills. As well as the discrete lessons provided in school, children are exposed to extra-curricular music-rich events in Paragon, at Christmas time and in Choir club. Extra-curricular lessons are also provided by SMS for children who have a particular interest or flair for the subject.
