Pupils are encouraged to develop their Independence, Social and Collaborative Skills during lessons as they learn to appreciate a range of different Musical Forms and Genres. We aim to develop appreciation of Music from a range of cultures, help pupils to express their ideas through the medium of Music and develop practical skills as well as prepare students to be active listeners, learners and creators.
Pupils receive one lesson of Music every fortnight throughout KS3.
Students follow an Introductory Curriculum, which includes:
• Introduction to Music. (Practical & Theory)
• The elements of Music
• Musical Notation
• Form & Structure
• Instruments of the Orchestra
• Introduction to Music Technology
Students are assessed following completion of key topics and units of study. Music is assessed and reported each term as part of the Performing Arts curriculum.
Studying music can support the progression into a career within the music industry. Music related professions include but are not limited to; sound engineer, recording engineer, musician, composer, conductor, song writer, music producer, music publicist, music agent, music librarian, music teacher, music therapist, music journalist.
