At Wybunbury Delves we aim to 'light the spark for a love of learning and of life' and believe Music is a subject which offers the very best opportunities to achieve this. Music is a practical subject involving children in listening, thinking, feeling and most of all doing.
'Music has a power of forming the character and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young.' (Aristotle)
'Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind and life to everything ... Without music, life would be an error.' (Plato)
