Music Department statement:
In the Music Department, pupils are encouraged to appreciate positive participation through practical experience. Skills are developed through a variety of performance opportunities – in groups, as a class and individually. The practical element is supported by related listening where the music is set in context – socially, culturally and historically. Pupils also use technology to create original music. Through all elements of the course, pupils are encouraged to reflect upon their progress to take some responsibility for their learning. The Music Department fully embeds the School’s Aims – Learn & Improve, Get Involved, Think of the Consequences – with an emphasis on the positive consequences getting involved can have along with the resulting progress.
