Music
"Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, and flight to the imagination …" – Plato

Why Music?


Music is everywhere around us and is a daily part of many people's lives. KS3 music aims for pupils to be able to listen and appraise, compose and perform music from a variety of genres, time periods and styles. Pupils will be able to interpret music when performing and will be able to communicate expression through music. They will also develop musical ideas effectively by controlling and demonstrating understanding of the musical elements through composition, whilst also responding to different musical stimuli through listening and appraising.

They will learn about a variety of musical genres including Pop, Dance, Blues, African Music, Samba, Film Music, Musicals amongst others.

KS4 Music follows the Eduqas Specification which enables pupils to develop their knowledge, understandings, performance, composition and listening and appraising skills. Pupils will leave KS4 Music being equipped with the multiple transferrable skills that Music GCSE offers – these are looked favourably upon by many employers.

To be a musician is to be an academic, a self-reflector, a performer, a thinker, a problem solver, a resilient and proactive person.
