At Leamington we value music because it is a unique part of the curriculum that can be used as a vehicle to teach other parts of the curriculum. It increases self-confidence and creativity whilst also allowing children to shine and showcase their abilities. Music is accessible for everyone at Leamington. By Year 6 we hope that every child has an increased and sound knowledge of the music curriculum. In addition we want every child to be able to play either the recorder, violin or guitar with confidence and determination. We want our children at Leamington to leave our school having gained a love of music and performance.
The aims of music are:
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.
