Our Music Intent

At our school, we believe that music is a vibrant and vital part of a well-rounded education. Our music curriculum is designed to ignite a passion for music, fostering a culture of creativity and appreciation.

We include:

  • Enjoyment: We prioritize joy in music-making, ensuring that every child feels the excitement and happiness that comes from engaging with music.
  • Improvisation: Our students will learn to express themselves freely through music, developing confidence and spontaneity as they improvise with different sounds and rhythms.
  • Composition: We encourage young composers to create their own melodies and harmonies.
  • Singing: Every voice is unique and valuable. Our program includes singing as a fundamental way to develop musical skills and express emotions.
  • Playing Instruments: Hands-on experience with a variety of instruments helps students understand music’s diverse textures and forms.
  • Listening: Critical listening skills are cultivated through exposure to a wide range of musical genres and styles, enhancing students’ understanding and appreciation.
  • Appraisal: Students will learn to evaluate music, recognizing quality and articulating their thoughts and feelings about what they hear.
  • Notation: Reading and writing music notation is a key skill that opens up the world of music literacy to our children.
  • Performance: Regular opportunities to perform build confidence and showcase the skills and talents developed through our music program.
