Music at West Lodge

Music is very high profile at West Lodge. We aim for all of our children to have access to and enjoy the curriculum as well as the wide range of extra curricula activities.  They should all be given the opportunity to express themselves through music and be uplifted by music and song. The walls of West Lodge vibrate with music from all around the world and children gain knowledge of other cultures whilst listening to, performing and even composing an eclectic assortment of music.
