The national curriculum for music 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.
The school has a good range of musical instruments.
Guitar and Piano
The school is proud to be able to offer guitar and piano lessons, either as single or group tuition, to all our pupils in year 1 and up. These sessions are led by an external provider at a small cost to parents. Please ask the office for an application form if your child would like to participate.
Performances involving a combination of music, movement, singing and drama are presented for parents and friends throughout the year.
