Recent research shows us that: ‘Everything about good music is positive, with the power to affect our lives forever. Musical experiences provide a sense of community and belonging.’ Gari Stein

Developing Music at Hindhayes -



Music, as a universal language, promotes creativity, reading and comprehension skills, confidence and a sense of fun all at the same time. At Hindhayes, we want the children to enjoy their musical experiences and feel enriched as a result of them. We want to instill a sense of achievement no matter what their abilities or understanding are. Music can encompass all abilities and ensure that, for a time, children feel they are an equal and essential part of a whole.
