Pupils develop the technique of listening and discriminating between sounds. Basic rhythms are taught using simple percussion instruments. As they progress they learn more complex skills such as the ability to read simple notation, composing and performing their own pieces.
Every child has the opportunity to play a musical instrument during their school life and can continue this further if interested. Pupils can play collaboratively as part of the local ensemble group. Singing is developed throughout school. Extra curricular music clubs encourage wider participation and interest and we welcome a wide range of musical visitors to school to enrich and support the curriculum.
