Music enables children to develop an understanding of culture and history, both in relation to children individually, as well as ethnicities from across the world. Children are able to enjoy music in as many ways: as a listener, as a creator or as a performer. Children have the opportunity to discuss and share their thoughts, opinions and ideas, acknowledging and respecting that these may vary and that this is good thing. They can dissect music and comprehend its structure and can progress from singing and finding the pulse to developing an appreciation of harmony and creating ostinatos with growing complexity. Our Music curriculum will foster a love and increasing enthusiasm for music amongst our children; create opportunities to grow children’s confidence and performance; and foster a potential for life-long musical study.
