Music Lessons Booster
Pupils at Nightingale Community Academy have been given a boost to their music lessons by a visit from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Musicians came and worked with the pupils for three days on a special project which involved the children having the opportunity to listen to world class performances and try many different instruments for themselves.
The school has been awarded a Music Mark by Wandsworth Music Alliance and the ABRSM due to its commitment to provide a high-quality music education for its leaners. Pupils take part in weekly singing lessons and have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.
Teacher and Music Lead, Luke Kilkelly said: “We are very passionate about developing Music, as it is so beneficial for our learners in so many ways. Music is a real outlet and opportunity for them to succeed.”
Sonny, one of the pupils involved said: “I like singing and dancing in our music lessons. My favourite is when I can play the electronic keyboard because I can do lots of cool stuff on it.”
The school have achieved a lot in a relatively short time, and is looking to build on the progress already made by increasing the hours of instrument lessons, they can offer to pupils.
