Music at Rhyl

Music is an integral part of our curriculum offer at Rhyl. Our facilities and resources are excellent and include a recording studio as well as a dedicated music room with a full time music specialist teacher.

Music lessons begin in Nursery with a weekly music lesson in the Music room, as well as musical learning sessions that involve both parents and children. From Reception to Year 6, every child takes part in a compulsory weekly music lesson led by our music teacher. In Year 4 children learn to play the ukulele which they celebrate in performances throughout the year.

We believe that the key to successful and happy musicians is sharing music with each other. As well as whole class lessons, we have an abundance of extracurricular music available. At Rhyl, we provide instrumental lessons to children who show commitment and progress in their chosen instrument. These include:

  • Violin
  • Cello
  • Keyboard
  • Piano
  • Guitar
  • Drums
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • Trumpet

A class set of iPads means that all children can create their own music and share it in class, but also in their free time at school.

We have a thriving school orchestra and two choirs as well as an award winning rock band and ensemble groups in Key Stage 2.

Our state of the art music studio enables children to record and sell termly albums that showcase their talent. It also means we are able to broadcast our Rhyl Radio show live every Friday lunchtime.

All of the music that happens at Rhyl is celebrated at the end of each term with a music concert to friends and families of Rhyl.
