DJ Skills Project
The DJ Skills project introduces Key Stage 2 children to the concept of modern DJ skills. Using decks and computer software, children learn to cross fade and beat match like real DJs! A radio show is also generated by the children to demonstrate how they have developed their skills.

Music & Movement Early Years and KS1
Early Years and Key Stage 1 Music & Movement projects are fun and engaging for children from 3-7 years old. The projects develop musical, listening and social skills and involves a range of activities including responding to live music, singing, games and playing musical instruments.
Music & Movement with Phonics
This bespoke programme combines Physical Music with Phonics. Children associate everything from blending through tri-graphs and onwards to split vowel di-graphs with song and movement as opposed to bland paper concepts.
Music & Movement with Numeracy
Music and Movement with Numeracy brings a fun and practical introduction to musical development at the same time as working on key elements of the maths curriculum. It can be tailored to fit in with pupils’ current knowledge to work on mastery or developing new skills.
The whole class Recorder Project is delivered to develop instrumental skills on this popular instrument. Children learn instrument-specific skills alongside breathing techniques, and are encouraged to develop musical knowledge, including rhythm, notation and dynamics.
The String Projects can focus either on Violins only or on a mixed Strings group. The Violin project runs for 35 weeks and is aimed at Years 4, 5 and 6, and modified for Year 3 whilst the Mixed String project is particularly suited for Years 4, 5 and 6. All instruments are provided.
The project develops sound general musical knowledge in addition to specific instrumental expertise. Children learn both strumming and plucking techniques through a varied repertoire of popular and engaging songs which are learned over the course of the project.
The main objective is for pupils to use the correct playing technique for the Clarinet or Flute, tunefully! Imitation, call and response, aura skills, singing repertoire, melody playing, phrase shapes, interval, scales, and dynamics are key elements of the weekly lessons.
