Aims and Philosophy.

Music is a both a performing and creative subject and gives the students an opportunity to develop these skills through Performing, Composing and Appraising. Music aims to support their personal and social development through working with others and foster their musical sensitivity, creativity and aural perceptions through the acquisition of knowledge, understanding and skills and the exercise of the imagination. Music will aid in the promotion of their cultural development, involvement in and enjoyment of music as performers, composers and appraisers through experiencing a wide range of music.

To achieve this they will be required to improve their technical control and appropriate expression by performing a solo part or piece and perform in an ensemble. To be able to create and organise musical ideas, using musical elements and resources appropriately to produce completed compositions and be capable of differentiating distinctions within musical elements, to identify a range of styles and traditions and to discuss their own music and that of others.


At Key Stage 3 students follow a course of study that introduces them to vital skills in Music. Pupils cover all aspects of the National Curriculum through 6 themes in each year based on Performing, Composing and Appraising. Every year group studies a different topic within each theme building on the knowledge, understanding and skills they have previously learned. Students will also be given the opportunity to develop their IT skills by composing using Sibelius and Sona software. It is an interesting and challenging programme of study and aims to instil a deeper appreciation of the world around us.

At Key Stage 4 students continue to develop the skills taught at KS3. There is more focus put on the use of IT and performance using Appraising as a tool to learn the different styles associated with each period.

At Key Stage 5 students will now be expected to produce substantial performances and compositions that will prepare them for their further Education either at University or at work.
