Music learning across the whole school:

Students are developing music skills through singing, playing, moving, and listening to music. The students are encouraged to develop well-pitched and expressive singing, as well as a sense of beat and rhythmic feel and response. They are encouraged to listen with concentration and imagination, developing stories from abstract sound. Students use body percussion, as well as a large array of un-tuned (drums etc.) and tuned (xylophones etc.) percussion instruments, in a variety of class ensembles.

Students develop skills in solfa singing and listening (do, re, me etc.), and they enjoy group singing and singing games. The children listen for stories in music and find inspiration for movement and body expression.

Students practise improvisation and composition using all kinds of sound sources.

All students have the opportunity to perform within class and to their peers and school community through assemblies, school concerts and special events.
