Music

Music is a major part of everyday life and there are many people who have a musical talent of some sort.  Performing is a major part of the subject, along with listening skills and composing.

 

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 within music, they will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

 

Aims 

 

To ensure that all pupils:

 

 

 perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians

 

 

 learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence

 

 understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
