Music & Drama

Oakfield Preparatory School

Music & Drama

We aim to give every child a variety of musical experiences and want to ensure that all children will be given the opportunity of performing in productions, concerts and assemblies.

During the class lessons, theory and history of music, composing, performing and listening skills are studied and developed.  As well as the curriculum music lessons, children are able to learn a variety of instruments and we have a team of talented, enthusiastic peripatetic teachers.  The history of music, music theory, composing, performing and listening skills are studied and developed during class lessons. Throughout the year every year group perform in a production and there are informal concerts for individual soloists.

As well as formal church services, there is also a summer concert for all the ensembles.

Our ensembles and choirs are suitable for all abilities at Oakfield, developing every child’s potential and ability to the fullest. 

Musicians also perform in external concerts, most recently with the London Mozart Players at the Fairfield Hall as well as at the Dulwich festival and at the O2.

Learning a Musical Instrument

Mr Attwood inspires the children with his amazing talent, and gives the opportunity for children to play in an orchestra, jazz band or pop group.

He is supported by a talented team of peripatetic music staff and children who cover a breadth of musical instruments from piano and French Horn to drums and flute.

Once children start to learn an instrument they have the opportunity to join one of the following Oakfield groups: Brass, jazz, orchestra and woodwind.
