Music is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression and it can play an important part in the personal development of people.
Music education should engage and inspire children to develop their love of music and talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. To be able to perform and compose music, listen critically and have some knowledge of musical history and traditions.
As well as “class lessons” all the children are given the opportunity to learn to play the recorder and experience of playing percussion instruments.
In Key Stage 2 children are able to take up either woodwind or brass lessons and join the school band.
