Music Curriculum – Intent

Our teaching of the National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:

• Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music

• Be taught to sing, create and compose music

• Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.

• Have the opportunity to listen to live music.

At Holy Family we strive for children to develop a love and appreciation of music and to learn that music has power to connect and communicate with others and to enable children to express themselves individually and in harmony in groups.

We aim to ensure children develop a knowledge of musical vocabulary, different musical genres and their historic significance.
