Music develops imagination, sensitivity, inventiveness, community, enjoyment and a sense of achievement. It fosters the development of the whole child rather than simply teaching about music. In our school, music brings communities together through the shared endeavour of whole-school singing, experimenting with the creative process of music making and, through the love of listening to friends and fellow pupils, performing. With singing at its centre, our music curriculum is built on the premise that every child has a voice.  Children follow a pattern of study based that is progressive and immersive. This is centred around a particular style of music that begins with listen and respond activities, followed by vocals and culminates in using tuned instruments to learn the melody. Elements of composing, performing, and listening, build musical techniques as well as self-confidence, memory, wellbeing, motor skills, analytical, communication and performance skills. Playing music together is a core aspect of learning a musical instrument and can bring life changing opportunities and create lifelong memories for all involved.
