The Music Curriculum
Music is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. It is a means for personal expression and can also play an important part in helping children to feel part of a community. At Perton First School, we provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, and to develop the skills to critically appreciate a wide variety of musical forms.
To enable children to:
know and understand how sounds are made and then organised into musical structures;
know how music is made through a variety of instruments;
know how music is composed and written down;
know how music is influenced by the time, place and purpose for which it was written; and
develop the interrelated skills of performing, composing and appreciating music.

We believe that music should also be seen as a method for the building of children’s self-esteem, confidence and self-discipline.
