Return to Our Curriculum


A high-quality Music education will engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, so increasing their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement in all areas of their learning and making music part of their everyday life.

Hertfordshire Music Service’s First Access is a whole class project which gives all primary children the chance to play an instrument as an integral part of National Curriculum music lessons.

In Broom Barns, our First Access instrument is the strings programme, which begins in year 4. During this, the pupils learn to play an instrument, taught by a specialist instrumental teacher.

Pupils from a whole year group learn music through singing, musical games and learning to play an instrument taught by specialist instrumental teachers working alongside school staff.

Children can extend their music lessons,  enabling them to discover and develop their own unique music voice and express themselves through the language of music.  If you would like more information on after school or weekend lessons, please visit:
