Music Curriculum

 “Music can change the world.” Beethoven 


Music Curriculum Intent 

The intent is to ensure that music is an enjoyable experience for pupils. Children participate in a range of musical experiences, building up their confidence at the same time. They develop their understanding of rhythm and pitch and learn how music is structured, as well as learning technical vocabulary for these elements. As children’s confidence builds, they enjoy the performance aspect of music. Children experience listening to music from different cultures and eras.

Our objective at St Dunstan’s is to develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the importance of all types of music - especially as a form of prayer and worship to support our school’s Catholic ethos. It is imperative that children enjoy music and begin to learn and appreciate the beauty and necessity of music in their lives.
