Music in Key Stage 1
Music is learning about understanding how it is created, produced and communicated using the basic elements. I am given the opportunity to use my voice expressively, play tuned and un-tuned instruments musically inspiring me to perform to others. Using the elements of music, I am able to experiment and explore with sounds of my choice. I am also encouraged to listen to and appreciate live and recorded music including that of great composers. This helps me to express myself creatively and develop a love of music.
Music in Key Stage 2
Music is learning about understanding how it is created, produced and communicated based on the inter-related dimensions. I am given the opportunity to use my voice expressively, play tuned and un-tuned instruments solo and as part of small ensembles. Using the foundations of music, I am able to improvise and compose for a range of audiences. As a recorder player, I am able to use and understand staff and other musical notations. I am also encouraged to listen to and appreciate live and recorded music including the works of great composers and study the history of music. This helps me to express myself creatively and develop a deeper understanding and love of music.
