Purpose of study

 

Students study music in two strands, an introductory unit during Y7 to gain access to the basic skills and knowledge of both composition, performance and structure of music in a historical and culturally broad context. Supported by the duff drum, pupils gain an understanding of the musical elements and learn how to play an instrument.

During Y8 students build upon core skills to collaboratively create, develop, review and perform their own compositions inspired by the school ethos embedding positive messages in inventive and innovative ways. Students develop an understanding of historical and contemporary greats appreciating context and culture.
