Music at Red Hill

Purpose of study:

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

Our subject leader for Music is:

Miss Lizzie Buckley

Our essential learning objectives for Music at Red Hill Primary school are to enable children:

  • To perform.
  • To compose.
  • To transcribe.
  • To describe music.

There are many opportunities across the year, in every year group, for children  to use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs. There are also many opportunities for children to listen to high quality, live music, often produced by talented musicians in our own school!

Singing assemblies are an important feature of every week for all children.

Many children also have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument (including guitar, woodwind and brass) thanks to our talented, visiting instrumental teachers. The school also uses some Pupil Premium funding to offer instrumental tuition to some children who may not otherwise be able to afford it.

School assemblies and the Summer Concert give our musicians the opportunity to gain confidence and experience performing in front of an audience.

Class teachers use a music scheme called ‘Music Express’ to support whole class teaching.
