At Leatherhead Trinity we want all children to develop a real sense of enjoyment in music. They will be given opportunities to listen to a wide range of genres of music and learn to appreciate music from other countries, cultures and periods in history. All children sing regularly. Singing is a part of our daily act of worship as well as in music lessons; and through this children experience the joy of all singing together. All Year groups from the nursery to Year 6 have the opportunities to play a range of instruments (tuned and untuned). We encourage creativity in music and children are encouraged to try their hand at composing. Performing to others is important for developing confidence and a sense of pride; All children are given opportunities to perform what they have learnt in music.
Music is played in daily assemblies and sometimes in class to encourage good listening skills.
Children will be taught the key musical terms including: rhythm, pitch, beat, dynamics, tone & timbre
