The principle aim of our music curriculum is to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and sense of achievement with their creativity and musical achievements. As pupils progress throughout our school they develop growing vocabulary of musical technicalities (pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture structure). This growing vocabulary aims to grow a critical engagement with music allowing pupils to unpick what makes music sound the way it sounds and allowing them to compose and listen with discrimination and understanding. 

Pupils are given opportunities to listen to, perform, record and evaluate music across a range of genres and styles from pop to classical. They learn to use their voices to create and perform music on their own and with others. Children will experience playing tuned and un-tuned instruments individually and as a group. Extra-curricular music tuition will be celebrated and encouraged through performance and composition as enrichment to our music curriculum
