The overall aim of the music programme at Edgeborough is to encourage and promote the children’s enjoyment of music making in a wide variety of contexts. Music at Edgeborough is taught as a dynamic, evolving and practical subject, geared to all abilities and enthusiasms.
Pupils from Years 2-8 have at least an hour of curriculum music with a specialist per week. Many pupils (currently around 80%) choose to take individual instrumental or singing lessons. Performance opportunities are wide and frequent, both in school and in the wider community. Performing and being involved in Music is very much part of the fabric of the school.
Whilst the Music Department has a ‘music for all’ philosophy, it also has a very strong track record of pupils awarded scholarships at Senior Schools. In the past few years, Music Scholarships have been awarded at Cranleigh, Charterhouse, Hurst Lodge, Lord Wandsworth College, Priors Field and Wellington College.
