Subject Leader: Miss Doogan

Hello everyone! Welcome to Music at Great Moor Junior School.
I teach Music one day a week and spend the rest of my week supporting Year 3. 
I have worked in Music for over 15 years. In 2018, I graduated with a degree in Music. I have worked as a vocalist and songwriter for over 10 years performing in venues all over Ireland and the UK. I also play ukulele and guitar. My favourite music genres are soul, R&B, country and rock. I'm very excited to lead and teach the children in all aspects of music.
Our curriculum is based on the Model Music Curriculum's key elements of singing, listening, composing and performance. 
As well as curriculum music lessons, the school offers children the opportunity to take part in instrument lessons delivered by Miss Doogan and experienced peripatetic teachers. Lessons in keyboard, guitar, ukulele, recorder and brass are available. Wherever possible, we also encourage children to bring their instruments along to class music lessons to further develop their playing skills. Currently 78 pupils (around 25%) of our pupils have a lesson. Ask at the school office for further information.

We have a thriving singing club at Great Moor. We meet every Tuesday after school and we have around 50 wonderful singers. We take part in concerts throughout the year and sing a wide range of different songs. We love to sing at Great Moor!

Our music ensemble club runs on a Monday after school, where the children play keyboards, ukulele, samba drums and other percussion instruments.
