«Without music, life would be a mistake. »
– Friedrich Nietzsche –
Music is a tool that develops a multitude of skills in children and has very different benefits for pupils’ learning. It helps develop language and reasoning, memorisation, coordination and, perhaps more importantly, emotional development. It also enhances imagination and curiosity.
Most people enjoy music, whether listening to it, singing or playing an instrument and Yago School aims to spark an interest in and passion for music in all its pupils.
All the pupils at the school receive two Musicclasses a week. From Infant 5 they learn solfeo in English and they play on the 20 pianos we have in our music room.
We put a large number of pupils forwardfor the ABRSM (Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music) examinations, for which examiners come from London twice during the school year.
Music makes us better people. As Shinichi Suzuki said; “If a child hears good music from the day of his birth, and learns to play it, he develops his sensitivity, improves his discipline and patience, and achieves a beautiful heart.”
