Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. The teaching of music helps pupils’ ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music and to make judgements about musical quality. We encourage the children to explore and experience the pleasure of making and listening to music of different instruments.


Children learn through several activities to develop knowledge skills and understanding of:


  • listening to a variety of musical instruments and different kinds of music to, for instance, recognise pitch, tempo, duration and to be able to interpret mood, feelings and expression
  • create musical patterns by exploring and experimenting with musical instruments
  • controlling sounds through singing and playing tuned and untuned instruments
  • rehearsing and performing individually and collectively
  • responding to music by dance, singing or some other suitable form of expression
