The music program at NHS has an active hands on approach to music education. Instruments, dance and singing are at the core of all lessons. Students are encouraged to be music makers. Students undertake music lessons each week and cover all key music skills through activity and performance.

The program has key focus areas that include African drumming, Marching drumming, ukulele, Salsa dancing and singing. Skills are developed in these areas and others over time starting in reception. This builds self-confidence team work and lifelong skills. It is our aim that all students can play an instrument, make music as a team and dance before graduating from our school.

In addition to the classroom music students can take their learning further in music by joining our extension groups. These include the Primary Schools Festival of Music Choir and School Choir, The North Haven Guitar Group, The Instrumental Music Services Hub Band (concert band), and The Piano Group.
