Inspiring Creativity Through Music

At Woodside Junior School, the development of each child’s musical creativity is highly valued. Since music is a universal language, it links different cultures and it allows our pupils to understand and relate to others, express themselves and develop emotionally.

We are proud of our musical achievements and celebrate these throughout the year, culminating in a musical showcase in the summer term.

Children are offered a variety of musical experiences which include listening to music from their own and other cultures, composing and performing using voice, as well as pitched and unpitched instruments.

Specialist visiting teachers from Buckinghamshire Music Trust are able to provide tuition in keyboard, brass, woodwind and string instruments. Following students' requests, Soundbox Music Academy provide drumming tuition contemporary music and drumming at Woodside. In addition, we also welcome RockSteady to lead band practice - gathering a selection of children from different year groups with a range of musical talents to form a rock band who work towards an end of year concert. 

We are also very fortunate to have a strong connection with the Amersham Music Centre, who are part of the Buckinghamshire Music Trust.
