Music

Music is highly valued and well established at Philip Lane. We provide musical education from Reception to Year 6. All pupils are given the opportunity to partake in individual, group and whole class tuition, including from specialist teachers in our dedicated music room.  Singing is a strength at Harris Philip Lane and the whole school takes part in a singing assembly on a Tuesday morning.

All classes learn songs in a wide range of styles and traditions. They learn to control and play tuned and untuned percussion, conduct in small groups and write collaborative compositions which provides all the requirements for Music in a primary school.

Children are provided with enrichment experiences which include attending concerts such as ‘Bright Sparks’ at the Royal Festival Hall and performing with local secondary school pupils. During 2017, Year 5 have been involved in an exciting composition project connected to Black History Month with the professional composer, Juwon Ogungbe culminating in a performance at Bernie Grant Arts Centre.

Year 4 children are given expert tuition in guitar, violin or cello from the Haringey Hub of musicians. This can be extended during Year 5 and finally continued into Year 6 for pupils seeking to develop their instrumental skills. In this context pupils become involved in ensemble work linking with other Haringey schools.

Children have opportunities to perform to each other and to parents at events and regular music performance assemblies.  We appreciate the support that families give to their children on these occasions.

In addition we provide extra-curricular activities for any interested pupils. We have a Steel Pan group teaching pupils in Year 3 – 6. This is an after school activity that children may apply for via the school office.  Individual children can learn either the piano or violin at a subsidised fee by a tutor provided from the Haringey Hub and again, can be arranged via the office.

All pupils participate each week in singing and we have a Choir for our Key stage 2 Pupils. The Choir perform in assemblies, at school functions and many other events in the local area. So far this year and planned for the coming months, our Choir have performed at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre, at the Excel Centre as part of the Harris Federation Conference, at the Royal Albert Hall supporting Barnardo’s and will be singing Christmas Carols in the local area for a residential care home and at the Wood Green Shopping City. We have a strong relationship with Haringey Music Hub who we collaborate with regularly. The choir is oversubscribed and there is a waiting list for pupils who would like to join.
