Music Intent Statement
In our Music curriculum at HHJS our intent is to develop a love of music in children, encompassing an understanding and exploration of these skills; pitch, rhythm, pulse, texture, dynamics, tempo, timbre, structure. We also look to develop an understanding of the history and composers of Western Classical Music and its connection to World Music. Through a variety of songs, games, composition, performance, listening and instrumental work we hope to develop the essential Musicianship Skills which the children can take forward into their secondary school and beyond. It is our intention that all children will be able to play, listen and compose, have an understanding of the history of music, confident use and understanding of Musicianship Skills, and most will be confident to notate music on the stave.
