At Balladen School we understand that music can inspire and motivate children. It can also play a very important role in their personal development. Music can help children develop a greater appreciation of the world we live in, by understanding different cultures and societies. Our objective at Balladen is to develop a curiosity and enthusiasm for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the importance of all types of music. As children move through school they will begin to explore, engage and then express themselves through music. In this way they will develop skills that will inspire them to think critically and creatively, not just in the music classroom, but across all aspects of their life.
