  • Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. It transcends different cultures, abilities and generations.
  • Listening to and making music fulfils an instinctive human need for self-expression and creativity. It stimulates responses both on emotional and intellectual levels.
  • Music can be a lifelong source of pleasure. It is education for life.


To encourage, all pupils to:

  • develop musical skills and concepts through listening, appraising, performing and composing;
  • have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and the chance to progress to the next level of musical excellence through extra-curricular clubs;
  • develop social skills through co-operation with others in the shared experience of music making;
  • develop an understanding of musical traditions in a variety of cultures, genres and historical periods;
  • be motivated to enjoy and succeed in music;
  • understand and explore how music is created and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and musical notations;
  • use technology to explore and create music.
