Music Intent


At Gatcombe Park Primary school, we aim to develop children as musicians who:

  • develop a personal love of music
  • develop a critical ear, enabling them to compare and express preferences across a range of music
  • build an appreciation of a wide variety of music from a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn respectful appreciation and criticism of composition and performance of themselves and their peers
  • learn to sing and to use their voices in a range of groups and styles
  • appreciate music (voice and instrumental) as a form of communication and express their own views about this while considering those of others
  • create and compose music on their own and with others, with an increasing understanding of the inter related dimensions of music, using tuned and untuned instruments as well as technology.
