Parkgate Primary understands that music can inspire and motivate children, and play an important role in their personal development. Music can also help children develop a greater appreciation of the world we live in, by understanding different cultures and societies through music.
Parkgate Primary delivers a broad and balanced music curriculum, in line with national requirements, which enables pupils to:
Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
Learn to sing and use their voices.
Create and compose music on their own and alongside their peers.
Have the opportunities to learn a musical instrument, use technology properly and to progress to the next level of musical excellence.
Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
