At Ludworth we want all children to gain a firm understanding to what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles traditions and musical genres. We hope for children to develop curiosity for the subject and to have an acceptance of the importance of all styles of music in today’s society.
Through exposure to music from all around the world and across generations we hope to inspire children to find music that moves them and to learn the skills to which they can then use as their musical tastes changes and matures. This will also teach children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities. We promote diversity through our 'composer of the month' which we explore together in our weekly singing assembly.
Children will also have the opportunity to foster their instrumental flare and use this as a form of expression, increasing self-confidence, creativity and their sense of achievement. In KS2 children get the opportunity to work with Stockport Music Service who come weekly to teach brass, samba or ukulele.
Our Music curriculum also develops transferable skills such as team-working, leadership, creative thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and performance which have a wider application in their general lives in and beyond school. These skills link perfectly to our Ludworth Values.
