Music at DKH
Music is a vibrant part of our identity at Dog Kennel Hill. All children have regular opportunities to sing, listen to music, perform and develop skills in instruments. Our children regularly get the opportunity to participate in music events with other schools such as, Dulwich Hamlet Pan festival, Kingsdale Festival, Southwark Music Services events as well as performances in school.
Under the skilful direction of our Year 6 team, children have become renowned for their professional quality musical theatre productions. In weekly music lessons, children are taught to play steel pans and recorders as a whole class and have the opportunity to continue these instruments to a high standard.
Additional instrumental lessons and ensembles include our spectacular brass band, guitar groups, African percussion, Brazillian drumming groups , keyboard, piano and drum kit. Our school orchestra enables children, who play instruments out of school, to be included in ensemble playing.
