Year 7, 8 and 9 Music

Students study rhythm and pulse as a basis for building key instrumental skills. They are introduced to a range of instruments used in popular western musical culture including keyboard, guitar, voice and drums. Students learn the value of Music and how it can have a significant enriching effect on people’s lives throughout the world in various contexts. Performance opportunities are common throughout KS3 and students are given the opportunity to express themselves through performing and listening to live Music. Composition is also a significant aspect of the curriculum where students explore various ways to express themselves through creating their own sounds and taking their ideas into new directions through Music.
