Music

Purpose of the Curriculum:

(What will a high quality music education do for our children?)

 

  • Engage pupils in the wider world of music
  • Inspire pupils to have a love of music
  • Encourage pupils to develop their skills as musicians
  • Develop critical engagement with music as composers
  • 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 to the best in the musical canon.
