Music at Brecknock

Music is at the heart of the curriculum and ethos at Brecknock.

We are fortunate to have Rod Arran as a full time music teacher. He works with classes, teaching Recorder and Samba, and with groups of children before and after school encouraging them to develop their skills on a variety of instruments..

Rod works alongside class teachers and TAs to find ways of enriching and enhancing our curriculum through music. We are fully equipped with a digital music suite, and children have opportunities to weave music composition, animation and a variety of multi-media techniques through topic work.

Children are encouraged to join the choir and we participate regularly in music events across Camden. The Camden choirs all gather to sing together in Camden, once each year and  at The Royal Albert Hall every other year.

We have a peripatetic piano teacher, Jennifer Carter, who gives private piano lessons to our children during school time through the Camden Music Service.

We also host the Camden Junior Music Academy (CAMJAM) every Saturday where children from aged 3 to 11 can access a wide range of music provision including singing, drumming, piano and many other instruments.
