“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.”


At the heart of Music at Harris Academy Tottenham, is the belief that ‘Music is for everyone’. Our Music curriculum has been uniquely designed to offer every student the opportunity to find and develop their individual musical talents to the full.

While immersing themselves in new styles of music, pupils will work on a wide range of exciting activities and be provided with performance and appreciation opportunities. This will support their development into well-rounded young musicians equipped for making music in the 21st Century.

Music is a compulsory subject at KS3 and is taught within the Performing Arts curriculum. Pupils in Year 10 and Year 11 study the BTEC Tech Award in Music Practice; this is taught across three lessons per week at Year 10 and four lessons per week at Year 11. Music is also taught at Primary level once a week to all year groups.

Mission statement

Our pupils will be creative learners who enjoy exploring, devising and appreciating a range of musical genres. They will deploy a range of skills which will include, but is not exclusive to, effective use of articulation, technicality, rhythmic accuracy and a good sense of pulse.

A variety of music genres are explored to achieve this, from contemporary examples like Hip-Hop, to classic like blues. Exposure to a wide range of world music is also explored that includes Samba, Reggae and African drumming.

They will look at vocational roles within the music industry and learn about the professional and commercial skills needed to succeed. Other skills include knowledge of digital software, theory and compositional techniques. The ability to appraise their own and others’ work relating to these skills will be required in order to form constructive feedback and develop further.
