Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. At Hamsterley Primary our high-quality music education will engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. We see music as a way of bring pupils together with a collective purpose. As pupils progress, they will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to discuss their musical preferences and showcase these in their own compositions.
At Hamsterley Primary our Music curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
- learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others
- have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
- perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
