We are proud to have become a Musical Futures Champion School. Music at Monksdown Primary School is co-ordinated by Alan David Wilson, who teaches Music through a hands-on ‘play first, theory after’ approach.
Every child down from year 6 down to year 1 has the opportunity to play a range of modern musical instruments in their lessons including guitar, ukulele, keyboard, singing with microphones, drumkit and hand percussion. Children play together in whole class group performances, and experience a teacher who expresses genuine excitement as each class’ skill progresses.
In Monksdown, children come first, and our Music Curriculum is supported by our extra-curricular clubs which happen both in school time and after school. Ensembles which take place at different points throughout the year include Ukulele Club, Keyboard Club, YouTubers Club, Dance, Band Club, Choir, and our Liverpool-legendary bi-annual school show. In recent years our choir have performed in the famous St George’s Hall, Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool Shopping Park, Liverpool ONE and Liverpool Hope University’s Graduation Ceremony.
