    Music

    Welcome to Lancasterian Music Department!

    At Lancs, we believe that music is central to a child's development and strive to afford all of our young people the opportunity to engage in meaningful musical activities. 

    We are proud of our outstanding music curriculum and extensive range of extra-curricular clubs and ensembles. We have an exceptionally well resourced music room with all of the instruments and equipment that the children need to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding.

    On this page you will find information about the clubs and ensembles we offer, the music curriculum that every child receives at Lancs and photos, audio and video of our pupils performing.

    December 2020

    Due to the current pandemic, regular performances aren't possible.  Instead, the children of Lancasterian were filmed performing Christmas songs with concert violinist Zara Benyounes and concert pianist (and Lancs parent!) Holly Cullen-Davies. It was so wonderful to hear the children singing 'en-masse' in school for the first time since March!
