Music at The Oaktree School
Music is a creative curriculum and encourages children to express themselves. Children are taught to experiment with pitch, dynamics, pulse, rhythm and timbre to analyse and learn about elements of music. Music is also be used to learn about different cultures as Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity.
We aim to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and develop their talent as musicians, thereby increasing their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Music lessons are imaginative, fun and lively and use a combination of teacher-led and child-initiated activities.
The National Curriculum for Music aims to ensure that all pupils:
- use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes
- play tuned and untuned instruments musically
- listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded music
- experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions of music.
