The person responsible for developing Music at our school is Mrs K. Williams.
At Whiston Willis, our music curriculum strives to develop musicality through listening to, appraising, performing, composing, reviewing and evaluating a range of songs and styles of music from a variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres including pop, rock, classical and rap music.
As well as giving our children the opportunity to explore a range of musical styles, we teach our children the craft of singing with a range of exciting warmup games and activities.
We aim to give our children the opportunity to develop their musical talents and to provide them with the knowledge and skills to develop musicianship and express their musicality.
Our ambition is to in-still a life-long love and appreciation for music and performance and we strongly believe that all pupils can achieve this. We do not put ceilings on what pupils can achieve and we do not hold pre-conceptions about any pupils’ ability to make progress. We believe through learning music, pupils will develop creatively, culturally, spiritually and intellectually, as well as understanding how to use music to develop good mental health and well-being.
Music is a craft whereby knowledge and skills are a catalyst for a rich and inclusive music curriculum which nurtures fundamental musical understanding and meaning.
Our music scheme-Charanga- provides our children and staff with high-quality, stimulating, fun and dynamic music lessons which encourage our children to explore knowledge, develop musical skills and express their personality through music and performance.
