Music Develops The Brain In Ways That No Other Activity Can
By Mr Wright, Acting Director of Music
MIT have recently contributed to the growing body of research to confirm what teachers have noticed for generations: Music develops the brain in ways that no other activity can, resulting in noticeably higher processing capacity and better academic performance across all subjects.
It was great to welcome our exceptionally distinguished visiting music teachers back to school to help our students to shine on stage, to grow in general confidence and, of course, to develop even greater brain power! We cannot wait to hear them performing in our upcoming concerts. See the concentration in these pictures taken on a 10-minute walk about the department on Friday of our senior and junior musicians!
- Tuesday 6 October, 4 pm, New Girls’ Concert, Recital Hall, NHEHS
- Thursday 15 October, 7.30 pm, Senior Choir with West London Sinfonia, St John’s, Smith Square
- Thursday 10 November, 4 pm, Teatime Concert, Recital Hall, NHEHS
There are plenty of internal opportunities for all of our students to perform in the Lunchtime Atrium Concert Series and in regular assemblies and at many other events!
