From an early age children experience music in various forms; for example – nursery rhymes, background music, songs and games. We aim, in school, to nurture and build on these experiences in order to develop an understanding and enjoyment of music. Children are given opportunities to sing, play a variety of simple percussion instruments, explore sounds, compose, perform and listen to music from a range of times and cultures. Pupils are given the opportunity to pursue music lessons further and can learn to play an instrument, commonly the guitar. Children have the opportunity to take part in singing for the wider community at various events, performances and concerts.
