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.

“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
