Music at St James's
Our music curriculum is designed to allow pupils to have a deeper understanding of the music around them and allows pupils to interact with it with confidence.
The curriculum allows pupils to explore a wide range of cultures and traditions whilst developing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the subject.
Throughout their studies, pupils develop an understanding of the elements of music. An understanding of these key elements is an essential aspect of the study of music.
Whilst studying these key elements, pupils develop their performing, composing and appraising skills.
It is our intent, that pupils’ study of music not only develops their academic progress but also a wide range of transferable skills. Skills such as; resilience, confidence, organisation skills, time management, self-discipline and inter-personal skills.
