Music

Why do we teach Music at FPS?

To build confidence and a sense of achievement in a ‘non-academic’ subject, using musical sound as the dominant language of learning.

To explore creativity and expression using different instruments (including voice), techniques and technology to create musical compositions.

To be given the opportunity to learn how to read musical notation, play an instrument and communicate to others through performance.

To be able to critically engage with different genres of music through recognition of common elements.

During the second school lockdown period, Year 3 started their Recorder Course and Year 2 and Year 5 still managed to have their planned whole class instrumental projects with thanks to Trafford Music Service, initially over Zoom for those learning from home.

Also, during the second lockdown, Year 6 used their learning about the origins and structure of rap to create and edit their own, adding a backing track using Chrome Music Lab (check out the website to try out making your own compositions!)

 

Here's a snippet of the very topical rap created by Jake in 6F

Year 4 are working on their Summer Composition Unit based on the theme of 'Abstract Art', using images to inspire rhythmic patterns
