Music

PURPOSE OF STUDY
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage
and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and
sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and
to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
AIMS
The National Curriculum for Music aims to ensure that all pupils:
 Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including
the works of the great composers and musicians.
 Learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity
to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of
musical excellence.
 Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related
dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
