Music at St John's Cliviger aims to provide children with the confidence and knowledge to perform, listen, review and evaluate music. This is done through a combined approach of singing, playing instruments and listening to inspiring music. In our lessons we follow the Music Express scheme which is closely linked and organised based on our Adventurous Afternoons curriculum. 


There are a variety of musical opportunities for the children at Cliviger such as choir, whole key stage performances, class performances and individual performances. We pride ourselves on the amount and variety of music children are exposed to on a daily basis.
