Music at Leatherhead Trinity
We aim to provide all children with musical knowledge and understanding so that they can express themselves, grow in confidence, connect with others and learn about our world. We want to inspire and motivate children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music. Music also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community and we want children to be proud of their school and their personal contributions.
All children in Nursery and Reception will be encouraged to explore ways in which they can make music with instruments, their bodies and their voices. They will also be encouraged to and talk about the pulse/beat, rhythm, pitch, structure, dynamics, timbre, texture, tempo: speed, melodic shape and genre of music.
