The principle aim for Music in the National Curriculum is to ensure pupils are inspired to develop a love for music and improve their talents as musicians, whilst increasing their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they will learn to develop a critical engagement with music, while composing, and listening with to music. At Canterbury Cross, we aim to ensure that all pupils perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions. This includes reviewing and evaluating the works of great composers and musicians. Children will learn to sing and use their voices to create and compose music in groups and independently. They also have the opportunity to compose and learn to play a musical instrument, such as recorders or glockenspiels whilst using technology appropriately. They will be taught how music is created, produced and communicated through the inter-related dimensions of music.
