At St Mary's our intent for music is that music will enrich pupils’ lives and education as many of the skills are transferable across the curriculum. We intend to develop language and reasoning skills through music in addition to improving the skill of memorisation. We believe the children are entitled to a high-quality music education which engages and inspires them to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians. The children will learn to listen and evaluate recorded and live music, perform through signing and playing tuned and untuned instruments, compose and improvise, understand music history and read and understand musical notations. The pupils will have the opportunity to develop their talent as musicians, increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
