Music is an integral element of Highgate Primary School with all students from Year 1 to Year 6 attending weekly lessons ran by Ms Jackson. Lessons are Kodaly inspired and include singing, playing a range of instruments, composition, listening, responding and much more. We also have two school rock bands and two school choirs. Selected year 5 & 6 students are also given the opportunity to participate in the School of Instrumental Music programs of classical guitar and brass. Further information about those lessons can be found here.

In 2017, Ms Jackson is excited to be introducing drama as another arts subject for Year 1 to Year 6. This will give students a more well-rounded arts education and will help build confidence and stagecraft skills which can be applied in all aspects of the children’s daily lives. In drama classes, we will look at character development, improvisation/theatre sports, verbal and non-verbal communication skills and work on our biennial musical.
