Instrumental Music Lessons

If you would like your child to have instrumental/vocal tuition, this can be arranged through the Music Department. Hampshire Music Service provides teachers for a variety of instruments. Tuition takes place during curriculum and break times, on a rota basis in order that students do not miss the same lesson continuously. For further details please contact the Head of Music, Mrs Rowland.




Music Curriculum

The Wavell curriculum for music aims to ensure that all students:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
