Music

Teaching ensures that 'listening, and applying knowledge and understanding', are developed through the interrelated skills of

Pupils sing songs and play instruments with increasing confidence, skill, expression and awareness of their own contribution to a group or class performance.

They improvise, and develop their own musical compositions, in response to a variety of different stimuli with increasing personal involvement, independence and creativity.

They explore their thoughts and feelings through responding physically, intellectually and emotionally to a variety of music from different times and cultures.

Knowledge, skills and understanding

Controlling sounds through singing and playing - performing skills

1. Pupils are aught how to:
a. sing songs, in unison and two parts, with clear diction, control of pitch, a sense of phrase and musical expression
b. play tuned and untuned instruments with control and rhythmic accuracy
c. practise, rehearse and present performances with an awareness of the audience.

Creating and developing musical ideas - composing skills

2. Pupils are taught how to:
a. improvise, developing rhythmic and melodic material when performing
b. explore, choose, combine and organise musical ideas within musical structures.

Responding and reviewing - appraising skills

3. Pupils are taught how to:
a. analyse and compare sounds
b. explore and explain their own ideas and feelings about music using movement, dance, expressive language and musical vocabulary
c. improve their own and others' work in relation to its intended effect.

Listening, and applying knowledge and understanding

4. Pupils are taught:
a. to listen with attention to detail and to internalise and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
b. how the combined musical elements of pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and silence can be organised within musical structures [for example, ostinato] and used to communicate different moods and effects
c. how music is produced in different ways [for example, through the use of different resources, including ICT] and described through relevant established and invented notations
d. how time and place can influence the way music is created, performed and heard [for example, the effect of occasion and venue].

Breadth of study

5. During the key stage, pupils are taught the knowledge, skills and understanding through:

a. a range of musical activities that integrate performing, composing and appraising
b. responding to a range of musical and non-musical starting points
c. working on their own, in groups of different sizes and as a class
d. using ICT to capture, change and combine sounds
e. a range of live and recorded music from different times and cultures [for example, from the British Isles, from classical, folk and popular genres, by well-known composers and performers].
