Music

Our Curriculum Intent

The Music Department will bring out the best by engaging and inspiring pupils to develop a love of music. Students will reach their musical potential in performing and composing individually and as an ensemble, and through doing so will increase their self-confidence, creativity and teamwork skills. Combining academic knowledge from a range of other subjects, the Music Department aims to provide a unique set of skills, which are acknowledged to be excellent preparation for a range of disciplines, careers and vocations.

Students will be taught to:

  • Play and perform confidently in a range of solo and ensemble contexts using their voice, playing instruments musically, fluently and with accuracy and expression
  • Improvise and compose; and extend and develop musical ideas by drawing on a range of musical structures, styles, genres and traditions
  • use staff and other relevant notations appropriately and accurately in a range of musical styles, genres and traditions
  • listen with increasing discrimination to a wide range of music

Albert Einstein once said,

"Life without playing music is inconceivable to me. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music... I get most joy in life out of music."
