The Music Curriculum at The Pines
The purpose of the study of Music is to develop creativity and encourage pupils’ self-confidence, as well as providing opportunities for pupils to experience and appreciate music from a variety of genres, cultures and historical periods. The teaching of Music supports the development of exploration and communication skills, promotes teamwork and enables cross-curricula links, allowing for other subjects, including English, Maths, PE and PSHE, to be explored in a fun and engaging way. The aim of our Music curriculum at The Pines is:
- To provide all pupils with the opportunity to listen to and discuss a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music from a variety of genres, cultures and historical periods.
- To provide all pupils with the opportunity to use their voices and musical instruments, to improvise, compose and perform their own music.
- To provide all pupils with the opportunity to explore the inter-related dimensions of music, at a level that it accessible and appropriate to their needs and abilities.
