Our music curriculum aims to engage and inspire the children to develop a love of music and to increase the confidence they have in their talents as musicians. Musical skills are taught progressively through a combination of music lessons, which have cross-curricular links, and discrete weekly singing lessons. The children are actively engaged in creating and developing musical ideas using voices, instruments and music technology.
We actively seek wider opportunities for the children to develop their talents in all aspects of music. These range from school based activities, to developing projects with professional companies such as the English Touring Opera Company. The school also has a history of choral performance striving to develop and enhance singing skills, not only withing singing lessons but also through membership of the school choir. We take part in Wolverhampton's annual "Diversity" celebration and the "Young Voices" event in Birmingham.
The school is also able to offer the children the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. Our peripatetic music staff provide a variety of woodwind, brass and string instrumental tuition. The children learn in small groups, working towards music accreditation, whilst they are also encouraged to apply their skills by becoming members of the school orchestra.
Music skills, talents and achievements are celebrated through a variety of musical events and performances which take place throughout the school year. These include year group productions, celebration days, talent shows, performances within the community and class assemblies.
