At Parkgate we pride ourselves on being a very musical school.
In lessons, the children enjoy playing with a wide variety of musical instruments, listening to a huge range of musical genres and chatting about what they like and don’t like!
Children can learn guitar, piano and violin with a tutor, join a school orchestra and our singing club. We encourage all children to join in with our extra-curricular activities. The children love performing at the annual Christmas Concert (at the Watford Colosseum) and singing with 7000 other children at the O2 Arena in London! Through these experiences, they realise how much fun and creativity music allows.
They learn the importance of music – how it can break down barriers and how it can inspire them to express themselves when words are not enough.
