Our Music curriculum inspires children to develop a love of music and the skills of musicians. Children engage critically with music, showing thoughtful listening skills and using the musical canon to compose their own music.
Our curriculum enables children to listen and appreciate musical performance, as well as having the tools to review and evaluate it. Through the curriculum children will learn different genres, styles and traditions of music. They will create and compose their own music, through exploring musical instruments and musical technology. Singing forms a significant part of the music curriculum, as well as learning about significant composers and musicians. Creation, production and communication of music (pitch, duration, dynamics etc) also underpins our curriculum offer. Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination. This develops their understanding of equalities, as well as developing their passion for music.
