Composer of the Month

Each month the children of Perryfields Junior School listen to music that enhances their knowledge of classical music. The music is played around the school and the children can hear it as they move between classes. For each theme a key musician or composer is selected as an example and children are taught a little bit about the genre and/or artist in class and in assemblies.
