MUSIC AT LEATHERHEAD TRINITY
At Leatherhead Trinity we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage all children from the Nursery to Year 6 to participate in a variety of musical experiences which enable them to develop confidence and develop a range of skills. There is a strong focus on singing which takes place in class lessons, dedicated sessions in Collective Worship and performances. There is a KS1 and KS2 choir which offers many opportunities for children to perform to audiences. All children will learn a musical instrument (Ocarina, recorder, glockenspiel, ukulele and keyboard). Through learning a musical instrument children learn to develop the skill of reading music, playing with others, stamina and discipline to practise and improve and confidence to perform. Children will have many opportunities to listen to and perform a range of music from different cultures and genres. They are encouraged to compare and appreciate music by describing the musical elements of pitch, dynamics, timbre, tone, rhythm and beat, and consider their preferences.
