At Eton End we strive to promote the natural skills and abilities of our children. From the earliest stages, all children are involved in public performances ranging from the Nursery Nativity to our formal Carol Service in the elaborate setting of Eton Lower Chapel.
At Eton End, we believe that music is a key part of our children’s education. A chance to explore, learn, be creative and have fun.
Music is taught by our Head of Music from Nursery to Year 6 in the Music Department. Children have fun experiencing many music genres though listening, performing, and composing. In class lessons, children have opportunities to learn the ocarina, recorder, ukulele and bell plates along with a range of percussion instruments as well as developing their singing skills.
From the Nursery onwards , children are involved in music events including Harvest, Christmas and Easter. Pre-Prep children have the chance to perform to their peers in assemblies and Prep children perform both in assemblies and in our regular music concerts across the year. Pupils in Years 4 and 6 also spend part of the year working towards drama and music productions.
Children can work with our range of amazing Peripatetic staff to learn the drums, flute, guitar, piano, voice or violin. As pupils develop their skills, they can be invited to join the violin, flute or guitar groups.
We have ocarina and ukulele groups along with our percussion band. All children who participate in a music group often become involved with the Eton End Ensemble which performs together for special occasions across the school year.
Prep pupils can join our junior and senior choirs, have fun singing together, prepare for performances in school and participate in external competitions and music festivals.
Prep pupils also enjoy participating in our annual Christmas Carol Service at Eton College Chapel, singing around the Christmas Tree at Windsor Castle and collaborating for our summer soiree music festival.
