Music at Hope Community School
Music teaching at Hope Community School follows the specifications of the National Curriculum; providing a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum. We aim to provide children with the opportunity to progress to the next level of their creative excellence.
Our pupils will learn that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity (The National Curriculum).
At Hope Community School, we believe that music plays an integral part in helping children feel part of a community. Therefore, we provide opportunities for children to create, perform and enjoy music both in class and to audiences in the wider community. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music to their own and others’ lives and wellbeing and also the impact music has in the wider community.
We intend to inspire musicians of the future and create a passion for music in all our children that will stay with them for a lifetime.
Our aims are to ensure all pupils:
Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
Learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
