We believe our music education should help pupils develop a love of music and increase their self-confidence, creativity, and sense of achievement. As they move through the school, they should increase their engagement with different styles and genres of music both by listening and performing.
Children will learn to sing and use their voices, as well as playing tuned and untuned instruments, in order to create, compose and perform music for a range of purposes. They will understand how music is created and communicated, by learning about the dimensions of music-such as pitch, timbre and texture, dynamics, tempo, and appropriate music notations
The children will have exposure to a wide range of musical traditions, including the works of great composers – both historical and contemporary. They will be taught how to listen with concentration and respond in different ways to music they hear.
The music curriculum gives children the chance to perform and succeed, through singing in school, joining choirs and participating in musical instrument tuition. We believe in celebrating all musicality and enjoyment of music. In doing so, we foster an aspirational and positive mind-set in our pupils.
