West End Primary School and Nursery

Be Your West End Best


Practice and Performance in Music

We aim to foster children's sensitivity to and enjoyment of music through listening, composing and performing. Key concepts we develop in music are pitch, duration, dynamics, timbre, tempo, texture and structure. The children develop knowledge, skills and and an understanding of music and an appreciation of its importance in different cultures.


The children have lots of different opportunities to sing and play at school assemblies, class assemblies, music concerts and also to perform at Leeds Town Hall Concert.

Our commitment and excellence in singing has been rewarded with a Sing up Silver level accreditation, followed by a Gold award.


Children in Year 4 learn the Ukulele and we have a school choir. We have  peripatetic music teachers, from Leeds Music Service who provide optional extra tuition in woodwind, strings and brass.
