Music

The earth has music for those who listen.” Shakespeare                                                

 

Introduction

Our music policy outlines the teaching and learning of Music. The policy is based on the 2014 National Curriculum statutory guidelines. It has the full agreement of the governors who have approved it. The implementation of our policy is the responsibility of all teaching staff.

 

Aims

The overarching aim for Music in our school is to ensure that 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

Children 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

Children 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.

 

Peripatetic Music Lessons

All children participate in practical musical activities, which include rhythm, pitch, and notation work.

 

We have a variety of percussion instruments and children are encouraged to use them in creative music making and in performances.

 

Additional lessons are provided during the school day for pupils wishing to learn the following instruments:

 

  • Acuostic  & classical Guitar
  • Clarinet
  • Drums
  • Flute
  • Piano

 

These lessons are given by specialist music teachers and a charge is made for tuition and the hiring of instruments. Details of these charges are available from the school office.

Please notify the school office if your child is interested in starting peripatetic music lessons.

If you child is interested in learning a woodwind instrument, please write a letter to Miss Lund, our Music Coordinator via the school office.
