Music is a unique way of communication that can inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression and it can play an important part in a child’s personal development. Music reflects the diverse culture in our society and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand and appreciate the world they live in. Through the music curriculum we provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music. We aim to give every child a voice.

Singing lies at the heart of good music teaching. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to sing melodically with others. Through singing, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and appreciate different forms of music. Children develop performance skills in music lessons, learning how music reflects feelings and has an effect on their audience. We teach the disciplined skills of rhythm, pulse and pitch, to enable children to have the technical ability to perform and compose. Children are also taught to work collaboratively, combining sounds for effect.
