Imagine a life without music! Listening to, appreciating, singing along to and making music is an important part of a child’s experience at school. When adults remember back to their days at school, the songs they sang, the shows they performed in and the instruments they played together will be at the forefront of their memories. Music is a language that connects people all over the world.
The aim of our music curriculum is to inspire pupils to develop a love of music. We aim to use music to stimulate and develop creativity, to increase self confidence and to promote the shared sense of achievement from singing and playing together.
By employing a specialist music teacher we provide a high-quality music education which engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians. Children have the opportunity to learn to play the recorder and keyboard. In Year 4 all of the children learn to play the recorder. Our music teaching increases children’s self-confidence, creativity and gives them a sense of achievement as well as improving wellbeing. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
