St George's CE Primary School and Nursery

Nurturing the Spirit Succeeding Together Learning for Life


The teaching of music is based upon the fact that it is a creative and social art to be enjoyed. Children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening singing, movement and dance and by playing tuned and un-tuned percussion.

Music should engage and inspire, so that the children have the opportunity to develop a love of music and their talent as a musician. Children will be able to compose and listen to different genres of music and evaluate what they have listened to. They will study the works of the great composers and musicians. Children will have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, understand how music is created with the dimensions of pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notation.
