Improving creative confidence through performance, composition and an appreciation of different musical styles.
To promote a love of music across a broad curriculum. We want music lessons to be fun, inspiring and engaging. Through our music lessons pupils are actively involved in a wide range of musical opportunities. They develop their singing voices, use body percussion, and learn to handle and play classroom instruments effectively to create and express their own and others’ music. Through a range of whole class, group and individual activities, pupils have opportunities to explore how great pieces of music were put together, listen actively, compose and perform using traditional instruments and technology.
Whilst in school, pupils have access to a varied programme allowing them to discover areas of strength, as well as areas they might like to improve upon. The integral nature of music and the learner creates an enormously rich palette from which a student may access fundamental abilities such as: achievement, self-confidence, interaction with and awareness of others, and self-reflection. Music will also develop an understanding of culture and history, both in relation to students individually, as well as ethnicities from across the world. Pupils are able to enjoy music, in as many ways as they choose- either as listener, creator or performer. They can dissect music and comprehend its parts. They have an understanding of how to further develop skills less known to them, should they choose to continue along this path in the future.
