Music enables and equips learners to work both individually and collaboratively and create an exciting learning experience. Children are encouraged to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up confidence. By singing and listening to pieces of music, children begin to learn about the structure of music and how there are no limits to the organisation of a piece of music. Through the creative process of composition children can explore pitch, pulse, chord progression and harmony. We are able to teach them how music can be composed for an audience in different ways using instruments. Children are able to compose and record pieces in a way that reflects the modern, ever-changing music industry and begin to appraise and develop their sound and others.
At Jewell Academy we use a variety of methods to teach children the skills to become musicians. Specialist music teachers/visitors, assemblies and the Charanga scheme of work helps us to equip children with the tools to create music.
