The National Curriculum for Music aims to ensure that children 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. By understanding how music is created and produced (including the musical elements such as: dynamics, tempo, pitch and musical notation) children will acquire new skills: learn to sing with correct technique and also have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument that may not otherwise be available to them. A range of musical instruments are taught, including: untuned percussion instruments, boomwhackers, glockenspiel, keyboard, steel pans, recorders and ukelele.
Through the following key concepts: Listen; Appraise; Compose and Perform, the Caedmon music curriculum makes certain that these disciplines are embedded to progress to the next level of musical development.
