The Wavell School


Music Curriculum


The Wavell curriculum for music aims to ensure that all students:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

Instrumental Music Lessons

If you would like your child to have instrumental/vocal tuition, this can be arranged through the Music Department. Hampshire Music Service provides teachers for a variety of instruments. Tuition takes place during curriculum and break times, on a rota basis in order that students do not miss the same lesson continuously. For further details please contact the Acting Head of Music, Mrs Drake.

Timetables for instrumental lessons are displayed outside the Music Room; please encourage your child to check their times regularly.  A copy of the timetable will be provided for each student which they will receive during the first week back to school.  Please be aware that lesson times can change due to exams and other unforeseen events.

Please also be aware that the Instrumental/Vocal Tuition Contract is an annual contract.  Unfortunately, if a student changes their mind, you are still obliged to attend and pay for the instrumental lessons until the end of the contract or until a replacement can be found.

The School has once again been awarded the Music Mark for 2019-20

Hampshire Music Service have recognised the value that we place on music and nominated the Wavell to become a Music Mark School Member.
