Our Approach to Music

Our music curriculum aims to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum which follows a clear progression of skills. This document is available to teaching staff and ensures that skills and knowledge are developed accordingly and are progressive. The musical skills developed throughout a child’s experience at St. Alban’s are:

  • Performance Skills (Singing & Instrumentation)
  • Improvisation and Composition
  • Aural and Theoretical Knowledge
  • Personal and Cultural Development
  • Evaluation

These areas of our music curriculum have specific age-related expectations for KS1, Lower KS2 & Upper KS2. Collectively, these areas are used to inform teacher judgement and assessment of pupil’s musical skills and knowledge.
