At St Luke’s we aim to deliver a high-quality music education that teaches our children 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. We want our pupils to have an appreciation of music from their own and other cultures
· learn to sing and to 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, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations
· engage and be inspired to develop both a love of music and their talent as musicians. We aim to develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, listen to and perform a wide range of musical styles both in individual and group settings
