Music at Mangotsfield aims to develop an appreciation for music from different times and cultures and create meaningful connections between different styles of music. Learners will understand how specific artists and styles have influenced music through time. Learners will develop an understanding of how music is a medium for expressing emotions and inspiring others. Our music programme also develops the technical skills of composing music and musicianship (performing) including the importance of practice and reward as a result of a long term commitment to a musical discipline. Music will also provide a communal and unifying experience for learners through singing together in worship and performances, including for audiences, building confidence and self-esteem. Our music curriculum knowledge is split into three blocks: Performing, Composing and Appraising.
