‘Where words fail, music speaks’

Hans Christian Anderson


At Herne Juniors, we believe that music is an integral part of our children’s education and that every child should actively take part in making music. A high quality music education enables an enjoyment of music and a lifelong participation in the subject. Our fun and engaging curriculum has been designed to allow children the opportunity to learn to play a variety of instruments and to progress in the four main areas: Performance, Composition, Listening and Appraising.


We are extremely proud of the many other musical opportunities our children can experience outside the classroom such as termly instrumental concerts, charity singing events, community performances – to name but a few. In addition to this, we also offer the following extra-curricular activities:

  • Mixed choir (all ages welcome)
  • Orchestra (all abilities welcome)
  • Recorder club
  • Samba band


Lastly, we are very lucky to have a fantastic team of peripatetic music teachers that offer individual and group sessions on a wide range of instruments. The available sessions are as follows:


Drums – Mr Hall
Guitar & Ukulele - Andrew Parry Music
Violin – Mrs C Hopper
Brass & Woodwind – Andrew Parry Music
Piano – Andrew Parry Music
Singing – Andrew Parry Music
