At Round Diamond School, our aim is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is, through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. Children are taught by their class teacher or a specialist peripatetic teachers who provides high quality, engaging music lessons for all year groups in the presence of the class teacher providing valuable CPD opportunities.
Across all year groups the children learn how to explore, perform and create music through singing and using instruments. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up their confidence. Throughout the children’s school career, they are exposed to progressively more technical vocabulary and skills.
We are committed to ensuring that children understand the value of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves musically in a variety of different contexts.
