Excellence, Effort and Aspiration

Welcome12 Feb 2016WelcomeWelcome to the newly launched website of the Low Road and Windmill Music Federation. The website has been a long time in the making. I wanted to convey the quality, standards and professionalism I expect by default, from everybody who works in or with the Music Federation. I wanted to convey the passion and thirst for learning that all of our pupils exude as they sail over our educational seas towards their next destination. I want everyone to see that our Federation is magical and unique, a place of awe and high expectation. Somewhere that special and wonderful opportunities are not the exception, but the expectation.

We provide a rich and diverse curriculum with a strong emphasis on the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural elements. And what better way to exemplify these values than through the dedication an art which affects every single person’s life, in some form. Music.

Anyone who has studied a musical instrument will reliably tell you that it demands a high level of self discipline, develops tolerance, patience, resilience, dedication, restraint, social etiquette and self belief. The need to know when it is time to play, to rest, to reflect, to improve and to channel emotion in a positive and moving way. It develops motor skills, mental recall, muscle memory and a multitude of other skills too numerous to list here. And this is why we invest every child through a programme of music with the very best professionals in their discipline.

With the support of Opera North, we have brought this priceless project to the communities of Belle Isle and Hunslet in South Leeds. I truly believe that this is the beginning of a very special journey for the Federation, but we have a long way to go. Continual improvement and relentless perseverance are needed by us all if we are to get where I know we can be. I truly believe that we achieve excellence through effort and aspiration.
