Music

'Without music, life would be a mistake.’  - Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Purpose of Study

Music education will help pupils gain an understanding of how music is created, produced and communicated. Pupils should recognise the key interrelated elements of music:  pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations. Pupils will be prepared to appreciate different styles and genres of music, enjoy performing in an ensemble and be prepared to experiment with sound.  The teaching of music enables pupils to sing confidently, to play a musical instrument and be able to compose and perform. Music enables pupils to nurture their creativity, facilitating the communication of different moods and emotions, both with sounds and words.

 

Aims 

The school music curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Can perform, listen to and evaluate music across a range of historical periods and cultures, genres, styles and traditions and where possible links will be made to other curriculum areas
  • Can learn to sing using their voices and instruments to create and compose music, having the opportunity to learn to play different instruments and develop an interest in using music technology
  • Can understand how music is created and communicated, including the use of key musical dimensions of: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and structure
  • Are able to use appropriate musical notation

Organisation

  • Music is mostly taught in discrete music lessons, although links are made to topics children are studying
  • Wherever possible links are made to other curriculum areas.
  • Music units cover key stages, for example Foundation/EYFS. KS1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage
  • Music units offer breadth of coverage of each of the aims of the curriculum
  • Within the EYFS curriculum lessons are taught as discrete units alongside further opportunities for children to explore their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through music and dance
