"Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon” (National Curriculum, 2014).
As recommended above, we aim to foster a love for music education in our pupils, whilst also developing their musical talent and skills. At Larkrise we believe in the power of music. We recognise that music has the ability to spread happiness through our school which is something that is at the core of the Larkrise values. We recognise the important role that music can play in people’s lives and are committed to helping our pupils to realise the significance music can have in the wider community. Our curriculum aims to support pupil progress in an enjoyable, engaging way so that students embed the musical skills of listening and appraising, composing and performing.
