Music


'Without music, life would be a mistake' 

Friedrich Nietzsche

Snaresbrook Primary School aims to educate, develop and inspire children to achieve their full musical potential. Music inspires creativity and develops essential skills for developing confidence and self-expression. We therefore aim to provide a wide range of musical experiences for all through our ambitious curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities. 

How is music implemented?


At Snaresbrook Primary School all children have the opportunity to participate in singing, tuned and un-tuned percussion work, composition and listening to live and recorded music from Nursery to Year 6. 

We use the Charanga music scheme across the school, and our Years 3-5 have specialist instrumental lessons each week.

Redbridge music service instrumental lessons


We offer music lessons in a range of instruments, from guitar to keyboard and many in between, with the support of peripatetic music staff from the Redbridge Music Service (RMS). Children have a weekly individual or small group lesson in which they are taught the skills needed to sit music exams if they wish.

There is a waiting list for most of the instruments taught, so please contact Mrs Jenkins, Office Manager, for more information.

opportunities for enriched musical learning


We are always looking for opportunities to promote Music in the school by organising trips, visitors and workshops. Please see below details of the enriching experiences that we have taken part in. 

royal Albert hall 2019


On the 4th March 2020, Snaresbrook Primary School took part in the Redbridge Music Festival. The concert showcased new pieces specially commissioned for the event, as well as other pieces celebrating the vast array of cultures among the community. The 2020 theme of ‘Travel and Exploration’ was woven throughout the concert; touching upon various languages and musical styles including Yiddish, Chinese, Folk music and a steel pan ensemble.

The evening was the culmination of hours of hard work between students and the teachers. Well done everyone!

Year 3 Ukulele Lessons


All year 3 children learn the ukelele with a specialist teacher from Redbridge Music Service. The children have weekly lessons and are able to take their ukeleles home to practise. We are always excited to hear them perform and progress as the term goes on. 

year 5 cornet lessons


From September 2021, Year 5 children have been learning the Cornet. They have a weekly lesson with a specialist teacher from the Redbridge Music Service. It is a tricky instrument to play but they are already impressing us !

year 4 recorder lessons


Each year, our Year 4 classes learn the recorder. This has been hugely exciting for the children and given them strong foundations for reading music as well as playing. 

lso concerts


Our Year 5 children experienced the spectacle of a live symphony orchestra. The LSO and presenter Rachel Leach guided us through the enchanted woods of Eastern Europe and their tangled tales of wolves and witchcraft. We explored a musical path through the dappled light and dark glades led by the evocative works of Dvorak, Mussorgsky and Prokofiev.

instruments learnt at Snaresbrook


Our children learn a range of instruments both inside and outside of school, and are always keen to showcase their musical knowledge. 

Conductive Music


Conductive Music came in to give free lessons to children. The children were taught how to play music through different objects including fruit and vegetables, lego, playdough. These were then linked into the computer and the sound was played through the computer speakers. It was a great day!
