of a team of peripatetic teachers, students enjoy a wide variety of musical experiences. These range from traditional to modern,
including all orchestral instruments, electric keyboards, piano and guitar.

There he d
eveloped all different musical contents according to the National Curriculum by providing a comprehensive
way to enhance the ability of understanding rhythm, movement, melody, improvisation, form and harmony.
[tuned (including steel pans)/untuned percussion, recorders and keyboards] and singing performance were a regular activity.
The vocal repertoire comprised unison songs, rounds, part songs in folk, traditional, popular and classical styles and songs
from other cultures. A theoretical approach accompanied all tasks in order to acquire compositional skills, the confident
usage of musical terminology and the better appreciation of musical structures.
Special emphasis was made in developing the vocal technique
and performance of the choir, which was required to participate in many community events and soon became the music ambassador
of the school.
As MFL Spanish Teacher he helped Y3 students with their first communicative steps in the foreign language,
aiming to provide them with the basic vocabulary needed to talk about themselves in the foreign language, find out about other
people and, in addition, to stimulate children's interest in the country's culture and provide talking points about the similarities
and differences between the everyday lives of children in different European countries.
