St James' Catholic Primary School"We belong to the loving family of St James”

Music - Mrs Draper

Music Subject Lead - Mrs Draper



At St James’ we engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music. We believe that music is a unique and powerful form of communication that can affect a pupil’s mood and the way that they feel, think and act. Music has many benefits; it can increase listening and concentration skills, self-esteem, confidence, creativity and memory.



‘Without music, life would be a mistake’ Friedrich Nietzsche


“How is it that music can, without words, evoke our laughter, our fears, our highest aspirations?” ― Jane Swan


“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ― Bob Marley.


“Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.” ― Johnny Depp


“If you cannot teach me to fly, teach me to sing.” ― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
