At Kilmersdon Primary School, music is taught through the music school programme Charanga. Children develop their understanding through singing, listening, evaluating, analysing, and composing across various styles, genres, and historical periods. It allows them to make musical judgments, apply new learning, and develop their aural memory.  In addition, they express themselves physically and emotionally through discussion and musical ideas. The children will not only learn about music; they will also become musicians who can share and perform using their skills.


National Curriculum Aims:


●   perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods,        genres, styles and traditions, including the works of great composers and musicians.


 ●  learn to sing and use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence.


 ●  understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.


Our objective at Kilmersdon Primary School is to encourage a love and curiosity of all types of music. We intend to support the development of an unbiased respect for music's role in people's lives and the wider community. In addition to this, the children will develop their confidence through music and have musical opportunities through weekly singing assemblies, choir club and peripatetic music lessons.
