KS3 - year 7 & 8
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.
Modules studied are:
- Pitch, dynamics, duration
- Tempo, timbr
- Music for different occasions
- World Music
- Music in film
The Music department also provide students with access to ongoing instrumental music tuition, opportunities for students of all ages to participate in concerts and musical productions, and provide curriculum days for pupils in KS3 (year 7, 8, & 9).
