Beyond the Beat

All pupils in Year 4 will join the Hampshire music programme 'Beyond the Beat' and will be provided with a hire instrument to practice.

The Beyond the beat programme provides an exciting mix of instrument lessons and band experiences. It is resourced with high quality music for both the learning in lessons and the ensembles, with on-line access including full backing tracks so children can practice effectively at home.

Children will be learning in a fun and engaging environment through Beyond the Beat, exploring a range of exciting musical styles with their friends and peers.


The wide ranging benefits of learning an instrument have been scientifically proven. Numerous research projects demonstrate music's impact on many vital classroom skills, improving the quality of group work, listening skills, organisation, fine motor skills and cognition to mention a few. Research has also recognised that there is a very real connection with improved performance in other subject areas.


Pupils can continue to learn their chosen instrument (at a cost) in Year 5 and 6.

Children can learn an instrument and join a band by taking part in iRock during the school day (at a cost).
