How to help your child:
1. Students of all key stages should listen to a range of music styles and genres.

2. Sign up to instrumental lessons which are provided by Hounslow music Service. These are subsidised by the school and offer students an excellent opportunity to improve their instrumental skills.

3. Encourage students to sign up to the range of extra-curricular activities within the music department.
