Music is a unique form of communication; a universal language that can enrich our lives: music can inspire and motivate; it is capable of raising the spirits, reducing stress and building imagination and empathy. Music is a unique form of personal expression and it can play an important part in the personal development of an individual. It reflects our culture and society and, as such, the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world they live in. Besides being a creative and enjoyable activity, Music can be a highly academic and demanding subject with many acknowledged benefits including:

 

· The development of language and reasoning

· Improved coordination, memory and fine-tuned auditory skills

· Emotional development

· Improved mathematical skills such as pattern recognition

· The building of intellectual curiosity and imagination

· Increased engagement and sense of achievement

· Improved levels of creativity and self-confidence

· The development of risk-taking, teamwork, spatial intelligence and discipline

 

At Cleveland Road Primary School, we aim to:

· Make the Music curriculum accessible to all pupils

· Make Music enjoyable for our children

· Ensure that Music is at the heart of our community

· Develop, in our pupils, a confident attitude to listening and appraising, performing, composing and improvising

 

We aim to help our children to:

· Know and understand how sounds are created and organised into musical structures

· Know how music is made through a variety of instruments;

· Know how music is influenced by the time, place and purpose for which it was written

· Know how music is composed and written down

· Develop the interrelated skills of performing, composing and appreciation of music

· Enjoy and appreciate a wide variety of musical styles

· Make and quantify judgements about the quality of music

· Enjoy singing and sing in tune

Not sure which instrument is for you? Watch Peter and the Wolf to find out more!

Discover the instruments of the orchestra as they tell this musical tale of Peter and the Wolf with music by Sergei Prokofiev.

The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten

Written especially for young people, Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra is a wonderful way of discovering the instruments. There are four families in the orchestra - strings, brass, woodwind and percussion. Hear each one as it takes the main theme (tune) and plays a variation before the whole orchestra unites at the end.
