Music Curriculum Vision

  • Essential Characteristics of Musicians

    Through our Music curriculum we will encourage children to develop the characteristics of good musicians:

    • A rapidly widening repertoire which they use to create original, imaginative and distinctive composing and performance work
    • A musical understanding underpinned by high levels of aural perception, internalisation and knowledge of music, including high or rapidly developing levels of technical expertise
    • Very good awareness and appreciation of different musical traditions and genres
    • An excellent understanding of how musical provenance – the historical, social and cultural origins of music – contributes to the diversity of musical styles
    • The ability to give precise written and verbal explanations, using musical terminology effectively, accurately and appropriately
    • A passion for and commitment to a diverse range of musical activities
