Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

Pupils have access to a wide variety of instruments in school including djembes, recorders, ocarinas, samba drums, ukuleles, beat boards, glockenspiels and keyboards! We have experienced visiting instrumental staff, offering specialist lessons on brass, drum kit, piano, string and woodwind instruments. This service is offered through Bedford Music Co-operative and can be booked through their website linked below.

Pupils at Putnoe Primary School have the opportunity to engage in performances, competitions and high quality musical experiences. The school choir has been particularly successful winning awards and competitions.
