Music is used at Ashmount to gain new skills and further development. It contributes to students’ social and emotional well-being and provides an outlet for creativity. Students receive weekly music sessions which involve a variety of activities, including: playing to live and recorded music, composition, using movement and music, and free improvisation. Each session includes high quality live performances on a range of instruments, offering students opportunities to experience new sounds
We offer a wide range of instrumental workshops at Ashmount offering all students the chance to take part in creative music making.
Music therapy is also used where it will help students’ expression and communication. The provision of a qualified music therapist means that students can achieve in another area of the extended curriculum and expand skills, expression and communication in single and group sessions.
