‘A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.’ Department of Education, National Curriculum
At Perry Hall, we believe music can bring excitement to our lives, intertwining feelings of love and sympathy, teaching children about different emotions, as well as elements of music theory. We, encourage and support children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build upon the skills and confidence of each individual. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We support them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. We also teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms. Throughout their time at Perry Hall students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of instruments including orchestral and percussion.
