Music is a universal language and is a thread that runs through Ashbourne Hilltop from nursery up to year 6.  Pupils are given every opportunity to experience, listen, engage, explore, respond and to work creatively with the language of musical sound. 

Ashbourne Hilltop provides wider opportunities music lessons to one year group each year.  Good musical teaching promotes high musical standards, ensuring that pupils make good musical progress, and enables both the participation and musical achievement of all groups of pupils.  Peripatetics, teaching a variety of instruments, are also available to ensure that every child has the opportunity of a quality instrumental lesson.


Each year there is the opportunity to take  part in a Foundation Stage, KS1 or KS2 production.  This year, KS2 performed their first musical since gaining Primary status - Alice, the Musical.  This was a huge success.
