Music

The music curriculum is designed to foster a deeper understanding of music and develop students into capable performers and keen composers, with the focus on perseverance to gain better musical accuracy, especially in an ensemble situation. Students, regardless of previous musical experience will be encouraged to improve their skills and focus on the key vocabulary needed for a better understanding of music and the elements of music. The music curriculum is designed to cover a broad range of musical genres and styles. These include the study of classical, popular and world music during key stage 3 and more of a focus on Western Classical Music in Key stage 4. Skills covered include playing chords on the ukulele as well as learning to read TAB notation, basic piano keyboard understanding and use of basic music technology via Garageband on the iPads
