'Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything' - Plato
Music has an essential place in the balanced education of all pupils. Music provides children with a unique opportunity to express their own feelings and covers the whole range of human experience. Through working practically with the raw materials of music, children develop skills of performing, composing, listening and appraising, developing knowledge and understanding of the subject as an expressible medium. At MHA we follow the Charanga Primary Music Scheme and we also work closely with the Cornwall Music Hub to ensure that our lessons are well-structured and stimulating.
We encourage children to learn a musical instrument through Cornwall Music Service Trust (these are private lessons), and each child also takes part in percussion lessons during their time at MHA.
